Last month SJF was delighted to announce the upcoming release of a new album from soul vet, GLORIA SCOTT. Gloria (now 76) will be releasing ‘So Wonderful’ on the UK’s iconic Acid Jazz label on September 30th .
The album’s lead-off single was ‘Promised Land’ which was followed the lush, hypnotic groove ballad, ‘All Of The Time, You’re On My Mind’. Now as the final taster, the label has issued the album title track. And this ‘So Wonderful’ is , yes, quite wonderful. There’s a big production from the UK’s Andrew McGuiness whom Gloria first worked with at the Baltic Soul Weekender in 2009 when she sang ‘What Am I Gonna Do’ (her 1974 cult anthem) with his Baltic Soul Orchestra and the tune’s packed with a life-affirming optimism which bodes well for the upcoming album.
