16. Shirley Scott: Great Scott! (Prestige, 1958)

Shirley Scott was consistently underrated throughout her career, surely because she was a woman. She had to follow Wild Bill Davis, however, because one of Scott’s signatures was the way she reasserted Davis’ uproarious sense of swing in the new hard-bop organ tradition. Her energy all but leaps bodily out of the keys. “All of You,” for example, has a churchy feel, but it’s of the holy-roller, get-up-and-move variety. “Four” is a somewhat unexpected piece for jazz organ repertoire, but when Scott plays it one is hard-pressed to imagine it was ever intended for any other instrument. If she’s not quite as commanding on “Cherokee,” she does make it work—and makes it fun too. (Note: This album is Scott’s debut, but only one of three albums she released under the same title.)
