Bass Player Magazine October 1993
On the jazz side of the street, three promising students were recently named winners of $1,000 awards from the Milt J. Hinton Scholarship fund: Joe Martin, Joseph Moore, and Nathan Peck. Martin is a student at William Paterson College; Moore is hittin the books at Memphis State University; and Peck, a 16-year old from West Virginia, is planning to pursue private instruction. The judges were Milt Hinton himself (of course) and noted jazz bassists Jay Leonhart and Charnett Moffett. The winners were chosen on the basis of their performances, their background, and an assessement of the potential benefits of private instruction in furthering their musical development.
