Shirley Scott - A Walking Thing

Product Code: CCD 79719
Availability: In Stock



After two splendid piano outings for Candid, Shirley Scott returns to the Hammond organ keyboard on which she made such an impact in the soulful days of funky jazz. All the musicians on the date are close friends from the Philadelphia area with trumpet ace, Terrell Stafford and tenor man Tim Warfield blending especially well in the front line.

The set has a variety of moods, including the infectious headlong romp of 'Carnival' and a marvellous tribute to art Blakey by Tim Warfield entitled 'Shades of Bu.' The title track gets an extended work out, Terell contributes the truly funky 'DB Blues' and Shirley herself pays respect to the late Harold Vick as well as importing an almost sanctified air to the soul classic 'When A Man Loves a Woman.'
