Since 1980, Berklee Professor Maggie Scott has hosted Jazz Vocal Night, an annual student recital where she is involved in all aspects, from auditioning the performers to accompanying them on piano. Celebrating Maggie Scott: 30 Years of Jazz Vocal Night, is part of the 2011-2012 Signature Series at Berklee and will take place at the Berklee Performance Center, 136 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA.
Scott and special guests Bennett, Hathaway, McKelle, Spalding, and Washington will perform jazz standards, and video footage of the alumnae from past Jazz Vocal nights will be shown during each artist’s introduction. The concert band features faculty members Tim Ray on piano, Terri Lyne Carrington on drums, and Jon Lockwood on bass. Concert co-producer Greg Hopkins plans to have additional instrumentalists – including students – join on some tunes with guitar and trombone features, horn section, and a string quartet.
