Hammond-heads have a new reason to hail the holidays this season: Rhoda Scott's The Hammond Organ Of Christmas, a collection of 17 classic yuletide tunes that combines French faire with African-American spirituals. Scott recorded most of the album in Paris in 1977 alongside drummer Bill Elliott. But two tracks feature Houston Person on tenor saxophone, Steve Phillips on drums and percussion, and Scott's deep, finely textured voice. As a minister's daughter, Scott elicits a natural spirituality in her music

For this set of Christmas songs, Scott is heard on all but two songs playing duets with drummer Bill Elliott in 1977. The organ playing sounds like it is straight from a very reverent church service, or from an ice-skating rink, particularly during the first ten songs. The two songs with Person (and drummer Steve Phillips) from 1993 are not helped by Scott's vocals.

Rhoda Scott (born July 3, 1938) is an American soul jazz organist. Scott was first attracted to the organ in her father’s church at age seven. It's really the most beautiful instrument in the world", she stated in a recent interview. The first thing I did was take my shoes off and work the pedals. From then on she always played her church organ in her bare feet, and to this date she has continued the practice. In 1967 Scott moved to France, where she has since spent most of her career.
