Description by

Shirley Scott was the first lady of the jazz organ. On "Soul Song" her organ playing is perfectly complemented by that of some great sidemen: Stanley Turrentine, Eric Gale, and Bernard Purdie. Her album is paired with one by Yusef Lateef. A multi-instrumentalist and musicologist, Lateef stretched the boundaries of jazz and created albums like this, which are filled with what today is known as "world music."
