5.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy Scott - All The Way - review by Dale 22 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't aware of Jimmy Scott until I read a memorium of his work, and then downloaded a 5-song EP of his from circa 1992. I could never imagine listening to music played slowly with such intensity as this, but after a few plays I finally "got it" and then procured a high-resolution copy of All The Way. I don't really know how to describe this music - a blend of Johnny Ray and Otis Redding perhaps, in a jazz setting -- it's unique and it's passionate - highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who is Jimmy Scott 13 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd after reading a newspaper '5 Star' review. I knew nothing of Jimmy Scott's voice or music and it took a while to get used to his pitch and style of delivery.

The collection comprises 10 slightly out-dated 'classics', performed with Jimmy Scott's deliberate and slow delivery, backed with excellent musicians and supported by a good 'low key' production.

Certainly pleased to have been introduced to this artist and have the cd in my eclectic collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars You keep hearing it 15 Jan 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
We saw Jimmy Scott at Yoshi's Dec 99 in a guest appearance with Jimmy Mcgriff and Hank Crawford. I never heard of Jimmy Scott, and to tell the truth, was slightly uncomfortable during the performance. This was not like anything I had ever heard before, and its not often that you see an artist so totally involved with the presentation - not just going through the motions or putting on a show. But I kept hearing the singing. We purchased ALL THE WAY on the way out of Yoshi's , and have listened to it often. Sinatra does a classic ALL THE WAY, and it took me a couple of listenings to fully appreciate Scott's version. Its totally unique and affecting. Get the CD and listen to it through at least 3 times ... you'll keep coming back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unsung American Master 13 Feb 1999
By David Baker (dgbaker.com@mailcity.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy Scott, this superlative singer is an unsung American Master. His distinctive voice--high and crystalline--is freighted with emotion unlike any singer I have heard. Many of us are lazy listeners of lyrics, but Mr. Scott's evocative interpretations of American popular ballads so engross the listener that he has us hanging on to every word. His renderings are invested with a longing and a melancholy of a life lived on the hard side. It is true that Mr. Scott is an emotive singer, but he is also a singer of high sophistication. I first came across Jimmy Scott when he was appearing at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. The reviews were glowing, but what struck me was that here was this artist with a superb talent who had traveled a very rocky road. However, his travails infuse his talent and what results is incomparable. On "All the Way," Mr. Scott is accompanied by estimable jazz musicians, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Grady Tate, guitarist John Pisano, and saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman. Five stars doesn't get it; "All the Way" is off the charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jimmy Scott 22 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Listen closely to this amazing vocalist, and I dare your musical soul not be both exhilerated and smoothly relaxed at the same time! Hidden and/or unrecognized for decades (at least to this listener, who, by chance heard him in 1995.) "All The Way" played on my auto stereo for nearly a year....a two hour commute each way. Just Jimmy Scott. Each word/lyric...so filled with his distinctive soulful yearning, pleading, love. This is not just singing/vocalizing. This is the love and joy and angst of life somehow captured in the voice of a man, who...if you let him...reaches clear to your toes. I dare you not to sing along with him, throwing the opening lyrics of "At Last" as far as you can, or visualizing someone from the past as you "accompany him" with "Everytime We Say Goodbye". And...each time you listen to Jimmy....he sounds brand new, all over again.

I picked this up on the advice of a friend, having never heard Jimmy Scott before. The CD hasn't left my player since the day I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jimmy 4 Jun 2001
By "shakaholic" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is simply AMAZING. Jimmy's voice is truly unique and his phrasing is just impeccable. As other writers have noted, Jimmy's style of singing is very slow & deliberate, as though he wants you to feel every note & breath that he takes. Every song on this cd will take you on an emotional journey, reach into your soul & when the song is over, all you will be able to say is "Wow". I have played this cd during many intimate gatherings and let me tell you, there are many new Jimmy Scott fans in Seattle. CD's may come & go, but this one continues to be in my cd player.
