Shirley Scott – Like Cozy

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Like Cozy is an album by organist Shirley Scott recorded in 1960 and released on the Moodsville label.

“The groove of the recordings heard on Like Cozy is what we’ve come to expect from Ms. Scott, late-night smooth groove that was heavy on ballads, medium bounce standards, and melodic interplay between leader and sidemen — a trademark specialty of the label. Scott’s piano playing is elegant and reminiscent of both Errol Garner’s and Billy Taylor’s. She has Garner’s ornate sense of style, and Taylor’s medium touch and sparse phrasing. A listen to the ballads and bounces here offers Scott’s dimensions and inventions as a pianist. ” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
