Product description

Amazon.co.uk

The official production credit goes to Joe Adams, but Ray Charles claims a major guiding input on Jimmy Scott's long-lost Falling in Love Is Wonderful. The original 1962 vinyl issue has become a sought-after rarity, withdrawn by Ray's own Tangerine label following threats of a lawsuit from Little Jimmy's previous Savoy Records home.

The Cleveland-born Scott joined Lionel Hampton's band in 1950, then gigged with Charlie Parker while developing his solo recording career. The rare Kallman's Syndrome inhibited Jimmy's hormonal development, keeping both voice and looks at a boyish level. Over the airwaves, he'd often be mistaken for a female singer. Here, Scott's translucent lines are cosseted by the delicate orchestrations of Marty Paich and Gerald Wilson, dominated by pure strings, decorated by oboe and flute curlicues. Ray Charles also played piano throughout, his trinkling lines answering Scott's pleading phrases. The old cover artwork featured shots of a cosy fireplace rug scene, a completely surrendered woman, supine beneath a suave, greying businessman. This scene slightly undercuts the album's mood of supreme tastefulness, as Scott's precise phrasing and controlled vibrato create a heavenly, hovering atmosphere. With its unremitting devotion to ballads, this album might be too smooth for some, but it certainly succeeds in spreading the intended mood. --Martin Longley
