Few organ players can kick into swinging grooves with as relaxed a feeling as those Shirley Scott generates on these two outstanding sessions from the Sixties. She was associated early in her career with tenor saxophonists--most notably Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Stanley Turrentine--but Prestige Records regularly varied the settings in which she was presented on disc. These are two of the most unusual. The ever-tasteful guitarist Kenny Burrell shares the spotlight on tracks one through six, while Lem Winchester lends his vibraharp mastery to the remainder to help create a unique--and ultimately satisfying-- organ/vibes front-line.

with Lem Winchester, Kenny Burrell, Eddie Kahn, George Duvivier, Otis Finch, Arthur Edgehill
