With a hauntingly high voice that breaks women’s hearts and makes men cry, Jimmy Scott is a living legend whose decades-long musical odyssey has taken him from the 1940s vaudeville circuit to classic jazz balladry to recent collaborations with rockers Lou Reed and Bruce Springsteen. His career resurgence has led the New York Times to call him "the most unjustly ignored American singer of the 20th century." Of the 1992 Grammy® nominee and subject of the recent award-winning documentary film JIMMY SCOTT: If Only You Knew, Ray Charles once said: "He defined what 'soul' is all about in singing long before anyone was using the word."
