Lost Jazz Shrines Returns in 2023: Celebrating Boomers / Remembering Cedar Walton - Featuring The Helen Sung Quartet - Feb. 18

The Lost Jazz Shrines series is dedicated to bringing legendary NYC jazz clubs back into the consciousness of the world with a thorough remembrance and celebration. Boomer's was a jazz club in Greenwich Village during the 1970s. The club was a venue for bebop musicians. At the club,  Cedar Walton, an American hard bop jazz pianist, recorded the albums,  A Night at Boomers, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.

Award-winning pianist and composer Helen Sung is a graduate of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance. Her newest album Quartet+ garnered inclusion in DownBeat's "Best of 2021 Albums" list and a JazzTimes cover story. Previous releases Sung With Words (2018) and Anthem For A New Day (2014) topped the jazz charts. In addition to her own band, Helen has performed with such luminaries as the late Clark Terry, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Regina Carter, Terri Lyne Carrington, Cecile McLorin Salvant, and more.
