Product Description:

This excellent compilation actually lives up to its superlative title, offering 47 key tracks by the mystifyingly gorgeous jazz vocalist.
Released as part of Union Square's Metro Doubles series in 2005, The Essential Jimmy Scott is a terrific 47-track double-disc set that offers a good budget introduction to Scott at his peak. The bulk of this dates from 1952-1960 -- there are four songs from 1975 added to the end -- and while this by no means includes all the great material he recorded during this time, it is a good, well-annotated overview of Scott at his prime. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
