Jazz Portraits 30- Shirley Scott (Organ)

Wow, cant believe its been so long so I posted a Jazz related piece. Here’s a lady Ive been listening to and getting acquainted with. Ms Shirley Scott, a wonderful organ and piano player who was an incredible band leader, band member, and an all around talented musician who I feel does not get enough praise. Some of my favorites by her include “Shirley” (w/ her husband Stanley Turrentine), Carla’s dance, 411 West, and Soul Song. There is also a good segment on NPR’s piano jazz with her as well. RIP.
