Now in his ‘70s, Jimmy Scott is still one of the most captivating voices in the world of jazz.  Since the revival of his musical career in the early ‘90s, he has toured the world, recorded for many labels, and has been the subject of a biography by David Ritz and two documentaries. 


Someone To Watch Over Me: The Definitive Jimmy Scott, spans more than 50 years of his remarkable career, and includes 28 selections on two CDs, from his early ‘50s sides with the Decca, Regal and Savoy labels, to the late ‘60s / early ‘70s Atlantic albums, and his recordings for Warner Bros., Artists Only! and Fantasy; and collaborations with the Lionel Hampton Band, David Sanborn and Jools Holland, to name just a few.
