"Queen of the Organ: Shirley Scott"

This week on Night Lights it's "Queen of the Organ: Shirley Scott." Although an admirer of Jimmy Smith, Shirley Scott found her own sound on the Hammond B-3 and became its most renowned female practioner, recording a number of soul-jazz classics from the late 1950s onward. We'll hear selections from the many albums that she and husband Stanley Turrentine recorded during the 1960s, as well as collaborations with Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Oliver Nelson, and her rarely-heard 1974 Strata East album One for Me. "Queen of the Organ" airs Saturday, March 18 at 11:05 p.m. on WFIU. The program will be posted to the Night Lights archives the following Monday afternoon.

 

Next week: "The Late Miss D." Dinah Washington's early-1960s Roulette recordings.

Which track(s) did you use from "One For Me"?

"What Makes Harold Sing?" There was so much material that I wanted to use--from all of Scott's albums that I have--but couldn't fit in that I'll probably do a sequel.

Anything from 'One For Me' is great. Someone really need to put this wonderfull session out on CD. She even sounds great on that mellowtron or whatever it's called on one track.

It's finally archived.

 

Open to suggestions for material for a sequel--as I said, had to leave a lot on the cutting-room floor, so to speak.

I think it's an Arp String Ensemble.

It says 'mellotron' on my lp.

I haven't listened to the LP in awhile. I'm probably thinking of the Don Patterson MUSE date of around the same era where he used an Arp String Ensemble.

Aw, sure it would! :D I just used Julie London's version of said song on Afterglow... surprisingly good! (From the 1957 JULIE album.)

Lovely listen, thanks. I do prefer her trio recordings, except for the Strata East.
