I’m so glad this story is being told.
Rising Above The Blues is a documentary about the now 86 year-old “Black Lodge” singer Jimmy Scott, “an artist who has had profound influence on the world of jazz and pop, but was never recognized by a wider audience“. Coming soon.
With Joe Pesci, Quincy Jones, Phil Ramone, Madeleine Peyroux, James Moody, Renee Olstead and many more.
Jimmy Scott will be performing in New York City on June 6,8 & 9, 2012 at Red Rooster Harlem, and June 11 2012 at the Blue Note.
