Vinyl LP Reissue!

Jazz vocalist Jimmy Scott is joined here by the likes of Charles Mingus, Kenny Clarke and more for an album of romantic ballads.

"Released in 1955, Very Truly Yours was the first album that Jimmy Scott recorded for the Savoy label. After spending the better part of a decade singing in ensembles, first with Lionel Hampton and then with New Orleans bandleader Paul Gayten, Scott was poised to make a name for himself as a solo artist. These dozen songs, executed with a small jazz combo supporting him (including Charles Mingus on bass), find Scott in beautiful voice, confidently investing himself in well-chosen covers as well as some of his own great originals. From the opening number ("Imagination"), it's clear that you're hearing a rare and expressive voice. Here he sounds every bit as romantic and inventive as he continued to be decades later." -
