JACK SCOTT "The Legendary Jack Scott (Big Beat Records) 1958

Jack Scott, an artist who worked and recorded in Detroit Michigan, is a superb talent. There is something very working class about him.  Not eccentric like Elvis, or insane like Vince Taylor.  A regular "Jack," who sounds decent as the sun arriving every morning.  Yet, there is menace in his music.  It's very sexy.  The great do-wop backup vocals on almost all the songs, are like angels looking over Jack Scott's shoulder.  If he makes the wrong move, they are there to protect him.  And on top of that, you get Stan Getz on sax.  The two classic cuts on this album are "The Way I Walk," and "Goodbye Baby."  The Mono edition of this album is sonically superb.
