• Little Jimmy SCOTT - Great Scott!

It has to be said that many consider Little Jimmy Scott to be one of America's greatest jazz singers. We at Jasmine think that this 'little' (sorry) example of his work, spanning the years 1950-1962 proves just that!

Features the orchestras of Budd Johnson, Ray Charles and of course Lionel Hampton, with whom he recorded his only charting hit, 'Everybody's Somebody's Fool'.

Many of the songs on this collection went on to inspire artists such as, Nancy Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Frankie Valli and countless others to strive to be the best they could thanks to the sound and talent of this American original.

Fully detailed liner notes.
