Beloved local pianist Janice Scroggins died last week of a heart attack at age 58, and reverberations of grief have echoed through the Portland music scene in the days since. Scroggins was a true virtuoso, adept at jazz, gospel, blues, and ragtime, but what rings just as purely as the notes she played during her lifetime is the legacy she left behind. To that end, a huge group of local musicians are assembling to play tonight's tribute show, with proceeds going to benefit Scroggins' family. The list of performers is far too long to reproduce here, but its vastness and stylistic breadth is a testament to the affection and esteem Scroggins engendered among her fellow players.
