'Java, Jazz & Jesus' is a transgenerational work of art that weaves the historic songs of faith into a refreshing new sound that is as much at home in the traditional Cathedral as in the modern coffee house. Scott's two original compostitions (Java, Jazz & Jesus, and Samba D'Van) show that Christian music is alive and growing in a way that will please anyone with an ear for music.'
