Album Review

Bobby Scott was only six months away from dying of cancer when, in May 1990, he teamed up with guitarist Bucky Pizzarrelli, bassist Steve La Spina and drummer Paul Jost for Slowly. Scott's voice sounds much more frail and noticeably weaker than it did on 1989's For Sentimental Reasons, although his lyrical, crystalline piano playing gives little or no indication that his health was failing.
