Vol. Lonely
As a jazz singer, Toni Lee Scott is known for her rich, deep, and meaningful voice with a highly emotional feeling for ballads. Her career had a difficult start when, aged just 19 years old, she had her left leg amputated just above the knee as a result of a terrible motorcycle accident. It took Toni five years to walk again, but before regaining mobility thanks to a prosthesis, she was already singing again. Throughout her career, she captivated audiences in clubs and restaurants across the country. On her only full-length album, "Vol. Lonely," for Äva Records in 1963, we find that sensitive singer who feels, means, and lives the lyrics of each song, with total control. Backing comes from Gerald Wiggins, a master of the art of accompaniment, who contributed substantially to the impact of Toni’s performances. Her eloquent mastery of smooth vocal gymnastics and her talent for cabaret style showmanship will doubtlessly grab you by the heart.

Live & Beautiful
Ruth Price has had an extraordinary life dedicated to jazz. As a fine singer with inimitable style and as founder and artistic director of The Jazz Bakery, Ruth’s flair and determination have reached the ears and hearts of many jazz fans around the world. The "Live and Beautiful" album was recorded at The Scene club in Hollywood, when, in April 1963, Ruth sang there accompanied by the Victor Feldman trio. Of her vocal talents, in the words of Leonard Feather, “Miss Price considers herself a diseuse, but she is much more than that. Her intimate deliverywill never bring her to the record charts or the Inglewood Forum, but so much the better. Her destiny is a small room among friends, or at least a few quiet customers, hanging on to her every word.”
