Marilyn Scott singing You Don’t Know Me.
It has been 32 years since Marilyn Scott recorded her first album in 1979 yet she is not that well known. Still despite her lack of recognition she is to me one of the best vocal jazz singers today. The jazz background music in her recordings makes her music stand out even more.
This audio version of Close Enough is an excellent example of Marilyn Scott’s music. I can’t think of any other contemporary singer that comes close to the sound of Scott.
Marilyn Scott was 30 before she recorded her first album and has recorded only twelve albums during her 32 year recording career. She is now 61 and it is sad that her music isn’t better known among mainstream music fans.
