After working with saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, notably in his hit In the Kitchen (june 1958), Shirley Scott (1934), also based in Philadelphia, became one of the leading soul-jazz organists of the 1960s (with strong gospel and blues accents), overcoming the genre's limits at least in the eleven-minute Chapped Chops, off Workin' (may 1958) for a piano-guitar quintet, and the nine-minute Blues For Tyrone, off Soul Sister (june 1960) for a quartet with vibraphone. The quartet date of Hip Soul (june 1961) began the collaboration with tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine (her husband) that would peak on Blue Flames (march 1964).
