Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On But Beautiful, whether through choice or necessity, Jimmy Scott uses his trademark vibrato sparingly. This is a good thing, since age has widened its pitch to a dangerous degree. Instead, his still distinctive voice floats over tried and true standards like "You Don't Know What Love Is," "Darn That Dream," and the title tune. What makes it all work are the singer's unshakable soul and his impeccable time. With each truncated syllable, you feel all the feelings accrued in his 76 years. Renee Rosnes's playing and arranging create the perfect modern--but not postmodern--accompaniment, allowing the singer to pause, confident that the space he leaves will be well filled but not cluttered. And as for time, Scott says it best: "The genius of jazz is how it frees time so we can forget time. Jazz lets us enjoy time." Scott's sense of time provides a master class for budding jazz singers everywhere, and enjoyment for everyone. --Michael Ross

I just pointed and clicked on this one...and ended up with a peaceful, soulful, melifluous, wonder in Jimmy Scott. His voice transcends times and trends. I've never heard him before but his masterful blending of blues and contemporary music just stunned me and left me with my mouth hanging open. His light voice was a surprise too--very easy on the ears any time of day.

Few artists feel music like Jimmy Scott. A very unique and compelling sound. Heartfelt. Worth every penny. Purchase his album "All the Way" as well. Really good.

This is one of his best CDs. If you like Jimmy Scott you must have this Disc. If you are just discovering him and you buy this CD, you will be rewarded but, take heed, this wonderful CD will leave you wanting more. It could hook you on Jimmy Scott and Freddie Cole as well, who has marvelous duet with Jimmy Scott on 'When you Wish Upon A Star'!
This CD, 'But Beautiful' is indeed a thing of beauty!
