JAZZ AT THE SANDBAR Presents: Bassist Amina Scott!
Time & Location
About The Event
Jazz at the Sandbar has been a popular performance series at the University of New Orleans since 1990. Jazz at the Sandbar is designed to provide UNO Jazz Studies students an opportunity to get real-life experience performing with respected professional musicians in front of a live audience. The series is presented on Wednesday nights during the fall and spring semesters and features a different respected jazz artist each week. It provides a medium in which students exercise their improvisational skills and gives them the rare opportunity to work with jazz masters. “Jazz at the Sandbar” was established by Ellis Marsalis, the first Chairman of the Jazz Studies Program at UNO. Downbeat Magazine calls "One of the best things going in America."
Amina Michele Scott, born and raised in Oakland, CA, is an upright and electric bassist, composer, and arranger. She relocated to New Orleans, LA to study at Loyola University and got her Masters at Florida State University. A 2017 Ravinia Fellow, she has performed with various artists including Steve Turre, Don Vappie, Wessell “Warm Daddy” Anderson, Nicholas Payton, Jamison Ross, Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah, Kermit Ruffins, and singer-songwriter Kristin Diable. She currently plays with The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra led by Adonis Rose as well as co-leading her band, Noruz.
