Johnson, Nina Simone and others. Scheuble, a pianist and organist, has received a "Youth In Action" award from International Women in Jazz and will record on organ at Rudy Van Gelder's studio this month. Hughes, a trombonist, just received a $25,000 scholarship from the Davidson Institute for Talent Development. Enjoy!
