Overview

One of Scott's best albums, Shirley Scott and the Soul Saxes finds the organist on a 1969 set of mostly soul covers. This was one of her few dates for the soul-heavy Atlantic label, but it certainly qualifies as a standout in the entire soul-jazz catalog. Joined by the royal sax trio of David Newman, King Curtis, and Hank Crawford, Scott plies her smooth, yet deep B-3 alchemy atop a stellar rhythmic pulse supplied by Chuck Rainey, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, and Richard Tee. And this fine contingent does not fail to please, especially on a joyous take of "More Today Than Yesterday" and the gospel-infused "I Wish I Knew (How It Feels Like to Be Free)." The versions of classics by the Isley Brothers, Aretha Franklin, and the Beatles aren't bad either.
