This 16-track retrospective covers ten years of jazz/pop singer/songwriter Marilyn Scott's career, from her first solo recordings in the early '90s to 2001. You'll probably find this album in the jazz section, and there are a few standards on the program, but the bulk of her repertoire is original and her sound is very definitely modern, in an R&B/smooth jazz vein. The tracks gathered here include collaborations with George Duke and the Yellowjackets' Jimmy Haslip, and several songs were co-written with Brenda Russell. The selections don't follow much of a narrative arc — you don't really get the sense of an artist growing and developing in any particular direction. Instead, Scott explores various avenues of musical expression, from quiet storm-flavored ballads like "The Look of Love" to the slightly awkward soul-funk of "Get Home" and modern reinterpretations of jazz classics like "You Don't Know What Love Is." Her cover of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" is technically impressive, but ultimately too imitative of the original to be very interesting. In general, though, this is a handy and attractive overview of what has been, so far, an impressive career.
