  • Organist Rhoda Scott with the William Paterson Jazz Orchestra
    04/12/15 07:30 PM - 04/12/15 07:30 PM

    Newark native and historic organist Rhoda Scott combines with the exciting WP Jazz Orchestra to re-create Rhoda’s historic 1976 collaboration with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, In New York. This legendary recording featured an album’s worth of original arrangements by Thad Jones, many based on Rhoda’s wonderful original compositions. These long-lost arrangements were donated several years ago by Scott to the Thad Jones Archive at William Paterson University, and the high-energy band will be playing from those rarely heard manuscripts.
