Our feature story is a stimulating interview with the dynamic entertainment trio-Sharon Redd, Ula Hedwig and Charlotte Crossley, formerly of the Harlettes.
One night in April, arrangements were made for me to see the trio perform to a standing room only audience. Midway through the act there was little doubt in my mind that the Harlettes’ performance was one of the best I had ever seen. Their diversity of material, delivery of songs and stage presence commanded the audience to not only beg them back for two encores but Sharon, Ula and Charlotte left them clamoring for more. The next time they’re in town, go see them and I think that you too will clamor for more!
In the business of entertainment feature writing, it is essential for the editors to rely on staff members to keep them current on the new and exciting shows and personalities. So thanks to Ms. Head for turning us on to Sharon, Ula and Charlotte, and to Leon MacDonald for making the interview as informative as it is.
Our salute to Melba Moore was a night to remember. For those of you who were present, you may reminisce on pages 24, 25 & 26. For those of you who were unable to attend, I hope you will enjoy our pictorial essay.
King Tut, Disco Roller Skating, Going South for the Summer, Children’s Summer Activities, “Fats” Waller and a host of music, sports, and theatre activities are just pages away. Enjoy! Our next issue will devote many of its pages to Jazz in and about the New York City area.
