Prana, 2016, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Marilyn Scott is a confident jazz singer with lots of experience and great friends. She’s not afraid to take standards in different directions and does so with success on“Standard Blue. She assembles a polished team including Gary Novak (d), Michael Landau (g), arranger Russell Ferrante (keyboards) and co-producers Jimmy Haslip (b) and Erik Zobler. In addition guest artists Bob Mintzer (b cl) and Ambrose Akinmusire (t) add sparks, notably on “Speak Low”. The Perri Sisters add sweet harmony on “The Joint Is Jumpin'” capping a warm session that has many sad, blue tones. But the spectrum of blue is beautiful.
