Jazz Singer Jimmy Scott Dies At 88.

               Jimmy Scott   

Jimmy Scott enjoyed a late career renaissance after the 1990s Jimmy Scott, the US jazz singer whose high and haunting voice earned him many high-profile fans and a Grammy nomination, has died at the age of 88. Scott had the rare genetic condition Kallmann's Syndrome, which meant he never reached puberty and his voice did not deepen.
Madonna once described him as "the only singer who makes me cry".
He also recorded with Lou Reed and appeared on the soundtrack to 1990s TV drama Twin Peaks.
