Hazel Scott spent her fourth
birthday aboard the small vessel
carrying her and her mother to
the United States. Her mother,
Alma Scott, was a gifted musician
who could play the piano, clarinet,
and alto and tenor saxophone, and
shortly afler their arrival here she
organized a gills’ band which she

The turning point in Miss Scott's
career came when Barney Joseph

her for hi.s Cafe Society Downtown,
a smart New York night club. A
