Shirley Scott & the Soul Saxes is an album by organist Shirley Scott recorded in 1969 and released on the Atlantic label.[2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4½ stars stating "One of Scott's best albums, Shirley Scott and the Soul Saxes finds the organist on a 1969 set of mostly soul covers. This was one of her few dates for the soul-heavy Atlantic label, but it certainly qualifies as a standout in the entire soul-jazz catalog".[1]
