连续两天在软件学院面试,看着不断有新生求学,内心还是欣慰的。

因为19号要交通管制,而我在杭州有个讲座,本想连夜开车的,不想接到通知,原定19号的宁波火炬接力因为全国哀悼日顺延三天,可以明天一早出发了。

火炬下午就从杭州到宁波了,而宁波也成为火炬停留时间最长的城市之一了。

前几天写的博里有关于Hazel Scott的内容,但我打错了她的名字,还以为GOOGLE里也不到,感谢yaopu的指点。更正如下

Hazel Dorothy Scott (June 11, 1920October 2, 1981) was a jazz and classical pianist and singer.

She was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago on June 11, 1920 and raised in New York City from the age of four. She performed extensively on piano as a child, then trained at the Juilliard School. She appeared in the production Priorities of 1942 and played twice at the famed Carnegie Hall. Her motion picture career included the films Something To Shout About, I Dood It, Broadway Rhythm, The Heat’s On, and Rhapsody in Blue.

She was known for improvising on classical themes and also played bebop, blues, and ballads. She was the first African American woman to have her own television show, The Hazel Scott Show, which premiered on the DuMont Television Network on 3 July 1950. However, she publicly opposed McCarthyism and racial segregation, and the show was cancelled in 1950 when she was accused of being a Communist sympathizer. The last broadcast was 29 September 1950.

Her most successful recording was “Tico Tico.” Her album Relaxed Piano Moods, with Charles Mingus and Max Roach, is the album most highly regarded by critics today.

She was married to Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. from 1945 to 1956, by whom she had one child before their divorce.

She died of cancer at the age of 61 on October 2, 1981 in New York City.
