    Background: Miss Gery Scott, British-born singer, is the first Western popular star singing before audiences in Moscow. Currently, Miss Scott is drawing large audiences at a show in the Russian capital with a song (SOF) dedicated to the Soviet Union's first spaceman, Yuri Gagarin. Musical support is from a sixteen-piece Russian band.

    Miss Scott's success lies in a jazz idiom often unknown to Russian audiences. She is giving 41 performances in the Soviet Union's principal cities during her three-month tour. At the end of May, she will appear on Moscow TV.

    Miss Scott recorded songs in Prague for three years. The records were also distributed in the Soviet Union. She then decided to go there and won the three-months contract. She is also a nightclub and television performer in Tokyo, Japan.
