Still looking for news of Jimmy Scott and not finding. I see that Wikipedia has a date, but no news story is coming up.

Ironically, I almost put on the pile of records for today the other Jimmy Scott, the Detroit soul singer.

You can tell the earlier style of kora compared to say Toumani's more fluid runs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/13/14 9:56am Doug Schulkind:

@Brian in UK
Does AllMusic still do that insipid "Emotions" thing where the list a series of adjectives describing emotions related to the artists' music. Infuriatingly stupid that was.

Warm welcome to: rogue oats!

Do not know Doug, it was just a casual look about Jimmy Scott.

Hi Doug
Brian - re Kora styles it was great to see Toumani Diabate a week or so back performing with his twenty something "rock star" son. Also highly accomplished but the master naturally outshone him.

Good morning, Doug and minions. The gif is cute, but it reminds me too much of the 70s (sorry, edf). I had a very GDS day yesterday, listening to D's Tues night full-album show, then The Fiveash, then Doug's Bodega fill in. You'd think I'd be tired of all this by now, but no-o-o-o.
