The Max Reddick Experience

Hazel Scott was born on this date in 1920. She was an African-American singer, actress, and musician.

She was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Under the guidance of her mother, Alma, she began playing piano at the age of two. Hazel began formal music training after the family had moved to the United States in 1924. She made her formal American debut at New York’s Town Hall two years later, and by 1929, Scott had acquired six scholarships to Julliard School of Music in New York City. Unfortunately she was 14, under age to be admitted to the school, which admitted only those 16 or over. In the meantime, Scott joined her mother’s All-Woman Orchestra, playing piano and trumpet.  [Continue reading at the African American Registry.]
