Allmusic4/5 stars[1]

A Walkin' Thing is the final studio album by organist Shirley Scott recorded in 1992 at Van Gelder Studio and released on the Candid label.[2]


The Allmusic site awarded the album 4 stars stating "One of Shirley Scott's last viable recordings before she passed away is a sweet, delicious collection of jazz standards and originals with a fresh-faced group that the organist was happy she was able to present, if the music is any indication... On this solid top-to-bottom recording, and one of her better contemporary efforts, Shirley Scott carries on fine and mellow, emphasizing her strengths and letting her very capable band do the work while she lingers in her own serene, soulful way".[1]
