Jazz Concerts at the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning

Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning turns up the heat in November with jazz concerts featuring two exciting and unique women. On November 4, spend an evening with Grammy-nominated Carla Cook, a daring jazz singer/songwriter. Cook sings standards beautifully, but she doesn't stop there. Cook reinterprets songs from the rock and R & B world giving jazz flavor to such pop classics as Simon & Garfunkel's Scarborough Fair, Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues and Neil Young's Heart of Gold.

On November 18, join Carol Sudhalter as she presents 'Women Composers of Queens.' Sudhalter culminates her extensive research of legendary and newly discovered female composers from Queens, NY, such as Emme Kemp, Julie Mandel and Jutta Hipp. Honorary invited guests will include several composers. The concerts are part of Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning's Liner Notes Jazz Series.
