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.

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.


    

(the right one is from Wikipedia - copyright owner unknown - trailer to "Rhapsody in blue")







taken from the internet - I don't have the copyright, so please drop a line if there is somebody who is the owner.

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