About Marilyn Scott and the West Coast All-Stars

Why do some artists thrive for decades in the ever-changing music world and others fade away so quickly? The reasons are myriad but there’s one factor shared by all of the true survivors: originality. The key to longevity is having something to say and being able to say it in a manner unlike any other performer. Marilyn Scott is such an artist. The veteran vocalist has been releasing critically acclaimed, cross-genre recordings for more than four decades, both as a leader and collaborator, and has dazzled audiences all over the world with her powerful live performances. She’s worked with some of the most gifted musicians in the world, including such highly regarded jazz ensembles as Spyro Gyra and the Yellowjackets, and some of the hottest names in the blues and R&B world, from Bobby Womack to Tower of Power to Etta James. Throughout all her work, there’s been one constant. “Never sound like anyone else,” she says. “You have influences but really, it’s your job to be who you are.”

What Other People Have Been Saying...

“Marilyn is very interesting because she can sing that Jazz thing and has that kind of Jazz phrasing but at the same time she’s got the blues. So putting the two of them together makes it kind of unique.”
– George Duke 

“Her alluring sound, formidable as ever, combines the grit-dusted smarts of Karrin Allyson with the seductive charm and crisp articulation of Lena Horne, accented with liberal hints of her blues-funk roots.” 
– JAZZ TIMES, Christopher Loudon
