About this Item

Hazel Scott (6/11/20-10/2/81) was an internationally known 20th century musical and social figure active in New York and internationally. She was acclaimed as a musical genius from childhood and was highly successful in her career as musician (i.e. pianist and organist) as well as being notable for one of the men she married (Adam Clayton Powell Jr., the New York politician, congressman and civil rights leader). Born in Trinidad, she came to America when she was 4 years old. Showing musical (keyboard) talent early, she auditioned at Julliard and was trained there (making appearances at Carnegie Hall along the way). She was prominent on the African American nightlife and social scene in New York and elsewhere as well as being an accomplished performer. She was classically trained but starred in popular (swing) music settings and was often called the queen of the boogie woogie nightclub pianists by the press. Later she took to the concert stage again and made a major impression in the classical and orchestral music scene also. She married Powell at the age of 25 after his divorce from his previous wife. Includes musical memorabilia, a christmans card from Scott and Powell, etc. Bookseller Inventory # 000094
