A Walkin' Thing

Shirley Scott

BUY / LISTEN

1992’s A Walkin’ Thing is the last of 3 albums the great American organist Shirley Scott recorded for Candid, and her final recording before her passing.

‘The Queen Of The Organ,’ as she was known, began her long recording career with Prestige Records 1958.  Here on her last outing we have collection of jazz standards and Scott originals.  The musicians on the date were friends and colleagues going back to their college days, specially Terell Stafford on trumpet and Tim Warfield on saxophone.

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.'

Arthur Harper, Aaron Walker, Tim Warfield, Terell Stafford
