Jimmy Scott

Get Jazzy with Jimmy Scott at Yoshi's Tonight

Jazz legend Jimmy Scott is rolling through town this week, with two shows at Yoshi's in the Fillmore. Scott, the favorite singer of artists ranging from Billie Holiday to Nancy Wilson, is renowned for his high, pure contralto singing voice. Legendary in his time, he gained new fans after appearing on the final episode of David Lynch's Twin Peaks (adding an extra hint of creepiness to the show's famously spooky Black Lodge). He's since recorded a track with Lou Reed, performed with David Byrne, Michael Stipe, and Antony & the Johnsons, and appeared at President Clinton's inauguration. He'll be performing with his band, the Jazz Expressions.
