    Since 1980, Berklee Professor Maggie Scott has hosted Jazz Vocal Night, an annual student recital where she handles all aspects of the event, from auditioning the performers to accompanying them on piano. Many of Scott’s former students have gone on to distinctive careers. Five of them – Antonia Bennett, Lalah Hathaway, Robin McKelle, Esperanza Spalding, and Nadia Washington – return to Berklee to pay tribute to their mentor at this concert. Scott and the special guests will perform jazz standards with a band featuring faculty members Tim Ray on piano, Terri Lyne Carrington on drums, and Jon Lockwood on bass. Additional instrumentalists – including students – will join on some tunes with guitar and trombone features, horn section, and a string quartet. Scott is a veteran jazz pianist, vocalist, recording artist and Julliard alumna who has been performing for six decades.
