Milestone, 2003, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: The man with the brilliant vibrato seems to live without aging. His voice, sometimes mistaken for that of a female results from a childhood hormonal deficiency. But count that as a blessing – combined with his ability to express the lyrics with heartfelt emotions and you have his signature. Romantics will love Moon Glow, the latest of Scott’s creations with ten well-arranged standards. Jimmy is backed by excellent musicians including Eric Alexander (sax), ‘Fathead’ Newman (sax), George Mraz (b), Renee Rosnes (p) and Grady Tate (d). All of the right ingredients are in place for this top rate session!
