Great Scott! is the debut album by organist Shirley Scott recorded in 1958 for the Prestige label.[2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review stated "Great Scott! was her first out-front contribution to popularizing the organ in a jazz format that also drew on parts of blues and soul music. She displays admirable command of the instrument's swoops and funky glows here".[1]
