Surely Scott is a quartet featuring Cory Weeds (tenor sax), Nick Peck (organ), Russ Botten (bass) and Joe Poole (drums); and they will pay tribute to the great Shirley Scott. Known for her impeccable sense of swing and leadership within soul jazz, Shirley Scott developed her reputation on the Hammond B3 organ since the beginning of her career, with tenor saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, in 1953. In 1958, Scott released her first solo recording, Great Scott, and went on to record more than 50 solo albums throughout her career. Free show at 7:00pm, food and drinks on sale at 6:30pm.
