After a six-year stay at Prestige, jazz organist Shirley Scott began a lengthy run of albums on Impulse! This two-fer brings together her first two albums for the label, 1963s For Members Only and 1964s Great Scott!! Each album splits its tracks between Scotts regular trio setting (variously featuring rhythms by Earl May/Jimmy Cobb and Bob Cranshaw/Otis Finch) and arrangements written and conducted by Oliver Nelson. Scotts Hammond fits well into each setting, leading the trio with terrific energy and verve, and finding space for lower-wattage performances amid Nelsons charts.
Scotts original tunes, including the superb Blues for Members, are given to the trios, with the orchestral numbers drawn largely from jazz and show tunes. The small combo is likely to be more satisfying to those who favor hard-swinging, bluesy shots of Hammond, though Scotts long musical relationship with Nelson yields some nice results, including a swanky take on Henry Mancinis A Shot in the Dark.
