What Ever Happened to Hazel Scott?

13 posts in this topic

No real "news" here, but there is footage and besides, it's nice to get the name out in the open every so often.

What is of interest to me in particular is the Dumont Network show. There's a Roku channel dedicated to what little surviving Dumont footage exists, and the last I looked, there was none of Hazel Scott's show. Let's hope that some is found, or if any has already been found that it gets up on that outlet.

Did not intend to bore anyone, just did not look at that two pianos thread. One cannot read all there is on here ....

Also, note that the two-piano thread contained a link back to this thread, which preceded it. So we not only have redundancy, we have circular redundancy. Circle gets the square. Rectangles on the house, triangles in the kitchen, let's all eat fruit and multiply before we divide.

Washington Performing Arts Society intends to commemorate her centennial with several performances next year. Here is a flyer that includes links to one or more of the stories linked to above, including a Smithsonian piece by the aforementioned Karen Chilton.

The Karen Chilton bio that Moms references above is very good--currently rereading while I work on a Night Lights show about Scott (it's her centennial year, but I've been meaning to do a program ever since I first read Chilton's book not long after it came out).

Anyway, she lived in Paris in the 60´s. Once I got some unissued private Bud and there is a duo of Hazel Scott with Bud. There were quite close. Hazel Scott did a long interview with Art Taylor in the early 70´s , it´s in the book "Notes and Tones".
