Rhoda Scott - Live at the Club Saint-German LP 1974 - Digital transfer noise cleaning and remastered, at Audio Design Studio 2012.

The disc is made ​​of a continuous live recording, so there is no pause between tracks.

Data format:     WAV

(LP 1)
1. Also spracht Zarathustra
2. Espoir
3. Floor lip
4. Le Saint-Germain

(LP 2)
1. Shiny stockings
2. Take it easy
3. You are the sunshine of my life
4. Slipping into darkness

One of the grooviest albums ever from organist Rhoda Scott -- a hip, double-length set recorded at the Club Saint Germain in Paris -- often with a good deal of funk in the mix! Rhoda's working here in a slightly expanded version of her usual format -- her own Hammond organ in the lead, plus drums from Cees Kranenburg and tenor sax from Leo Johnson -- the last of which makes for a wonderful addition to the groove! Most tracks are quite long, and build with a good sense of energy -- almost jamming at times, with the drums used much more heavily than on other Scott albums. And Johnson's sax is great too -- bringing in a sharper edge that really deepens the soul, and helps show a side of Rhoda that wasn't always caught on record at the time. Titles include a killer 18-minute version of War's "Slipping Into Darkness", a funky take on "Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001)", and the originals "Espoir", "Floor Lip", "Le Saint Germain", and "Nyugi-Nyugi". © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

Rhoda Scott

Born: July 3, 1938 Instrument: Organ, Hammond B3. The daughter of an AME minister, Scott spent much of her childhood in New Jersey, where she learned to play organ in the churches where her father served. Soon she herself was serving frequently as organist for youth and gospel choirs at her father's and other churches. Scott later studied classical piano, but she concentrated on the organ, eventually earning a Masters' degree in music theory from the Manhattan School of Music. By this time she had been asked by a choir member to fill in with a small band as a jazz pianist. Enjoying the music, she agreed to stay on with the band on condition that she be allowed to play organ instead of piano. Choosing as her instrument the Hammond Organ, she soon became a preeminent jazz musician.

Scott was first attracted to the organ in her father’s church at age seven. “It's really the most beautiful instrument in the world,” she stated in a recent interview. “The first thing I did was take my shoes off and work the pedals.”[1] From then on she always played her church organ in her bare feet, and to this date she has continued the practice, earning her nicknames such as “The Barefoot Lady” and “The Barefoot Contessa.” Following her lead, many other performers of popular organ music now also play barefoot. Because of her church training, however, Scott uses the pedals to play a genuine bass line, unlike many other jazz organists, which allows her to use her left hand for more elaborate chord work.[2] The resulting music is an energetic fusion of musical styles that partakes of jazz, gospel, and classical, reflecting both Scott’s early experience and her formal training.

In 1967 Scott moved to France, where she has since spent most of her career and earned recognition far greater than that accorded to her in the United States, though she often performs in the latter country as well.
