GENESEE COUNTY — A Feb. 9 appearance by award-winning jazz saxophonist Randy Scott has been moved from the Genesee Valley Mall branch to the Davison Area branch of the Genesee District Library.
The mall branch remains closed after a flood earlier this month caused by a broken water pipe.
But the show must go on. Scott’s appearance at the Davison library, located at 203 E 4th St., is scheduled from 2:30-3:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
He is an accomplished professional musician, record producer and composer who lives in Southfield. His fourth CD “Breathe” stayed on the Top 40 nationally for five months, according to his online biography.
He has worked with top artists including Brittany Spears, Kirk Franklin, Will Downing, Tim Bowman, Bob James, Anita Baker, Patti Labelle, Grover Washington and many more.
He performed, by request, at the White House for former U.S. President, William J. Clinton and also was featured at the International Jazz Festival in Dubai, UAE in 2010.
Among numerous awards, Scott has received two Gold records, two Platinum records and one Multi-platinum record for his work on a Gospel Wow compilation CD with Grammy award winner, Kirk Franklin.
Scott holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from Michigan State University and a master’s degree in Instructional Technology from Wayne State University. He has a music production company and recording studio in the Detroit-area where he records, writes, produces and teaches music.
For fans who want to hear more than an hour’s worth of Scott’s music, he will be the featured performer at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 14 in the “Love and Laughter Valentines Day Concert” at the Millennium Center in Southfield, 15600 J.L. Hudson Drive. For ticket information, visit www.neptix.com — Rhonda Sanders
