HAZEL SCOTT - A Discography
compiled by Michael Frohne

Just the start.
I hope Walter Bruyninckx doesn't mind that I used his discography as basics. And his entry as well.
More information will follow. And clips. And covers. And recordings as sidewoman. And some kind of biography.
I have the ones coloured in red in my collection - either as LP's, Singles or files. The other ones are still missing. If you have them please send a file. Thanks in advance.

Don't forget to buy the book by Karen Chilton!!!
