Herb Scott

This event has passed

Hill Center is proud to welcome Herb Scott as part of our Street Scenes concert series, curated by Shannon Gunn.

“Herb Scott is a young, soulful powerhouse on alto saxophone. As a bandleader, his style often veers into the over-sweetened terrain of smooth jazz, but no matter what he plays, his fleetness and conviction are undeniable.” – Capitol Bop

D.C. native and saxophonist, Herb Scott is a rising star on the Washington, D.C. jazz scene. While studying at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts under the award-winning educator Davey Yarborough, he performed with renowned trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and jazz pianist Herbie Hancock. His career includes performances at the White House, Dizzy’s Coca Cola-Club in New York, Lincoln Center, and the world famous Baker’s Keyboard Lounge in Detroit.

Herb’s first album as a band leader, “Introducing Herb Scott on Alto Saxophone, a NU-Jazz Collective”, was released in 2011. In 2015, Herb started the weekly Capitol Hill Jazz Jam session at Mr. Henry’s Restaurant, where Grammy winner Roberta Flack once held her residency. Herb completed his first International Residency at the St. Regis Hotel in Doha, Qatar before returning to the U.S. and headlining at the Legendary Blues Alley Jazz and Supper Club in the fall of 2016.

In 2017 Herb formed a non-profit, The Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation which provides critical resources, including advocacy, to DC-based Jazz musicians, venues, and music education programs.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Join us for a post-concert wine reception with the artist.

This project was supported by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
