Shirley Scott: Trio Classics, Volume 1 (2004)
The fare is soul jazz and the score is one original plus fifteen standards. This recording illustrates abundantly that Scott was per haps the most accessible of all jazz organists, including fellow Philadelphian Jimmy Smith. Her use of organ timbre and pedals is conservative and her soloing non-invasive. She maintains a steel-hard groove that is never broken even on the faster pieces like "The Scott" and "Indiana." "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "I Can’t See for Lookin’," as well as the opener, "The Scott," are superb blues, superbly played. This recording is marketed as Volume 1. I cannot wait for Volume 2.
