Held back for decades by record company problems, Ohio-born Jimmy Scott has only recently established himself as one the greatest jazz singers of all time. Now in his 70s, Scott's latest album sees him apply his eerie, androgynous voice on a set of old standards including classics by Irving Berlin and Duke Ellington. Ably backed by a swinging band of veteran jazz luminaries, he manages to wring every ounce of drama and emotion from between the lines of this familiar material. It's a superb album from a truly compelling performer.
