At the Grammy Awards a few weeks ago, Alicia Keys dazzled everyone away not only by hitting the perfect notes as a host, but also by playing a medley of hit songs spanning five decades on TWO pianos!
This was in tribute to Hazel Scott (1920 – 1981). Hazel was a jazz and classical pianist, singer, and actress. In addition to Lena Horne, Trinidadian-born Scott was one of the first Afro-Caribbean women to be given major film roles. She also was a courageous advocate for civil rights and was blacklisted during the McCarthy witch-hunt.
