Octogenarian Women of Jazz

We welcome you to join us in the Flushing Town Hall Theater as saxophonist/flutist Carol Sudhalter celebrates her 80th year as she leads a quintet of “Octogenarian Women of Jazz” in a concert of beloved jazz standards and originals by members.

The band of celebrities comprises world-renowned pianist Bertha Hope, drummer Paula Hampton of the legendary jazz Hampton family (including Slide and Lionel Hampton); and widely popular vocalist Keisha St. Joan. In addition, the concert will include a rare and eagerly awaited participation of revered bassist/columnist Bill Crow, now 95.

You know Carol Sudhalter as the house band leader of FTH’s monthly Louis Armstrong Jazz Jam. She is the youngest of the musical Sudhalters, long recognized for their contributions to jazz research and performance, and for their role in the historic Boston jazz scene (brother Dick Sudhalter, father Al Sudhalter violinist alto saxophonist played with Bobby Hackett, Eddy Duchin.) Bertha Hope, acclaimed as one of the world's foremost jazz pianists, and former partner of legendary bebop pianist Elmo Hope, founded the ELMOllenium project to preserve the musical legacy of her late husband.
