Although the title gets you geared for a compilation, in fact all 16 of the tracks on this CD came from a single session on May 23, 1958. It was Scott's first session as a leader, in fact, yielding her two albums Great Scott! and Shirley's Sounds, and everything from those two LPs is on this single-disc reissue. Recorded with the rhythm section of George Duvivier on bass (except for "Bye Bye Blackbird," where George Tucker plays the instrument) and Arthur Edgehill on drums, it's sleek, swinging stuff that might not be as well known as Jimmy Smith's early work, but was similarly important in establishing the format and popularity of organ jazz. Scott is a virtuoso here, adept at spinning off speedy riffs, quickly gliding to exclamatory notes, and making the instrument swirl and swell, but never at the expense of a soulful feel. The shortage of original material is a bit disappointing, with just one track ("The Scott") composed by Scott, the rest being covers, often of standards such as "Summertime," "Bye Bye Blackbird," and "All of You." Despite that imbalance, it's a good mixture, at times bopping along frenetically ("[Back Home Again In] Indiana"), at others adopting a bluesy walk ("I Can't See for Lookin'") or a Latin lilt ("Brazil"), and also mellowing down into some slow ballads. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

The Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis cookbook, vol. 2 by Eddie Davis( )

A mellow set of soulful hard bop starring the underappreciated tenor Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and the powerful organist Shirley Scott, this set, true to its name, really cooks. Like the best organ-based jazz, the tempos are mostly kept painfully slow, with only the closing "The Broilers" perking up to a trot. Throughout, Davis and Scott trade solos fluidly, with Davis' blues-based, honking tone perfectly suited to the churchy grace of Scott's organ. (Bassist George Duvivier and drummer Arthur Edgehill are, to borrow a phrase from Phil Spector, felt but not heard.) The three Davis and Scott originals are excellent, but the surprise is how well hoary old standards like "Stardust" and "Surrender, Dear" fit in this low-key setting. The CD adds a bonus track, "Willow Weep for Me," recorded during the same sessions. ~ Stewart Mason, All Music Guide
