Dorothy Denny Scardino Dies

Dorothy Denny Scardino, a jazz pianist who held a longstanding gig playing in a Manhattan bank lobby, died March 9 at a hospice in New York City of cancer. She was 82.

An obscure figure in jazz, some may remember Scardino better as Dottie Denny. She issued a couple of 10-inch records under that name in 1953: Dottie Denny Digs the Duke and Dottie Denny Plays Edgar Sampson. Both were on A-440 and remain out of print.
