Jimmy Scott

In a recent debate elsewhere on the mopiest songs ever, I was gobsmacked that no-one else mentioned “Little” Jimmy Scott. So, a primer: born 1927 in Cleveland, Ohio; suffered rare genetic condition which meant his voice didn’t break; started singing in the 1940s; signed by Ray Charles in the early 60s; suffered career decline and spent decades doing menial jobs; rediscovered in the early 90s by Lou Reed and David Lynch among others . He scared the crap out of lots of us in the last episode of Twin Peaks; but he’s mainly a jazz torch singer: “Slave to Love“; “Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child“; “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word“.
