ListeningToPrestige Posted December 13, 2022 Report Share Posted December 13, 2022 Does anyone have the Roulette album, Count Basie Presents the Eddie Davis Trio + Joe Newman? I'm trying to quote from Barry Ulanov's liner notes (from the discogs screen shot) and a couple of words are too blurred. He says: Little Shirley Scott is an astonishing musician. She has a big man’s power at the manuals and pedals. As the (unintelligible) pours force and the rhythmic impulse gathers force, one finds it hard to believe that this girl weighs, at most, one hundred pounds. But the power, effective as it is, is not Shirley’s most compelling contribution. It is rather, I think, the surrealist (unintelligible) with which she decorates the ballads. Help?
