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.
