Hazel Scott as Herself

Pianist and singer Hazel Scott is perhaps best remembered for her glamour.  Glamorous she was, but in this edition of Fishko Files (from January ’09), WNYC’s Sara Fishko explores a new book and an old CD that can help us go beneath the surface to Scott’s life and work.

WQXR’s Terrance McKnight honors Black History Month with a special on Hazel Scott: “Still Swinging, Still Classic: A Musical Biography of Pioneering Pianist Hazel Scott.” For more information, visit Terrance McKnight’s All Ears show page.
