  1. What a cool concept for a CD. I never would have thought of that one!

  2. Just heard the set on WKCR’s show with Sharif Abdul Salaam, whom i’ve been listening to since about 1970. Beautiful! “Somewhere” and the other tunes knocked me out. Thanks.

    • Thank you! Please keep in touch.

  3. […] I am glad to announce that Carol SUDHALTER’S new CD has just come out. All the organ selections were recorded at my studio. Carol is a great Jazz saxophonist  and flutist. She was looking for a Hammond B3 to capture her organ trio with the great Italian Jazz Organist Vito Di Modugno. All the other material was recorded at my good friend’s Slau Halatyn’s studio Besharp in Astoria Queens. for more info and where to buy the album go to: https://sudhalter.com/new-cd-carol-sudhalter-the-octave-tunes/.
