Scott Peterson
Although he was born in Cleveland and has lived in the San Francisco area for the past 12 years, Scott Petersen, ("E Dog" to everyone he knows) has always considered Detroit his musical home. This hardworking saxophone player is known and loved from coast to coast having played with many Detroit acts and renowned names such as Aretha Franklin and Dizzy Gillespie. One of the world's longest surviving adults with cystic fibrosis, he is now awaiting a double lung transplant.

Detroit's finest jazz and R 'n' B musicians will be on hand at Cliff Bell's on Tuesday, June 17 to raise badly needed funds for this deserving and talented sax man. Scheduled to perform are Marcus Belgrave, Thornetta Davis, Johnnie Bassett, Paul Keller, Walt Szymanski, RJ Spangler & James O'Donnell and the Planet D Nonet, Bill Heid and also the Sun Messengers.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
