A Virtual Performance of Love Walked In

September 13, 2020

I prepared this solo virtually with files sent to me by the drummer (Scott Neumann) and pianist (Joe Vincent Tranchina). Felt good about my playing on bari sax, both melody and solo, so I wanted to share it.

“I have been wracking my brain, trying to think of exercise I can do.(My doc says exercise.) Voila! I think I’ve got it! Jazz is my favorite genre and this video, Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise, got me up and dancing. Who knew? Thank you, Michelle Nicolle. I watched you on Flushing Town Hall Louis Armstrong Jazz Concert last evening. Thank you, Flushing Town Hall. Thank you, Carol Sudhalter, host of this monthly world-wide virtual jazz concert. Thank you to all of those who performed from around the world. It’s wonderful to discover musicians whom I would never have know without these virtual concerts.This event is my favorite evening of each month.


Elzy’s Introduction

September 9, 2020

What a wonderful introduction Elzy kolb wrote to her article on me, on Facebook September 8th:

“It was a real treat to talk with saxophonist Carol Sudhalter recently, and find her in such an upbeat mood despite a rough bout with COVID-19 in late spring. Carol is teaching, woodshedding, arranging and trying new things these days. She’s still recovering but full of energy and raring to go, using her time at home to reevaluate some routines, reimagine some of her approaches and reduce some stress. Check out the interview in September Hot House jazz magazine in print and online. And hear Carol in action heading up the Louis Armstrong Legacy Virtual Jazz Jam live on FaceBook on Sept. 9 at Flushing Town Hall’s FB page.”

And later, after attending she wrote:

“Carol, we Zoomed in last night and enjoyed every minute. That was so much fun! There was a nice home-made vibe to the evening, it was very intimate, heartfelt and relaxed. You really are a great host, you have such a great attitude and positive point of view, we always need that but especially now.
I’m going to nudge my Louis Armstrong-loving trumpeter friend Ken Brandt in Melbourne to check it out.
Stay well, and stay in touch.
