Kim Scott #9
Kim Scott makes playing the flute much more than an art form. She brings it alive! "Take It To The Rink" is a beautiful tune. And, that is why Kim Scott is up to #9 on my Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown for the week of February 15, 2020.
Why WRIP - Ripped Radio Smooth Jazz? Well, I love the music. For me, it is the perfect mix to drive by, to think by, to work by, to play by, and to chill by. It inspires, soothes, and quiets the soul. Enjoy! - Ronnie J.
