Alberta Hunter

“ if you are at the end of your journey,weary, worn and nothing seems the same you’re not alone my love’s eternal,Remember my name.”

So it is with these lyrics, we recognize Alberta Hunter, a jazz and blues singer from the early days of the jazz age. She has been inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame. She was a prolific performing and recording artist of the 20’s and ‘30’s having cut sides with legends of the era as Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Eubie Blake, Louis Armstrong, Lil Hardin, and Duke Ellington. In 1977, after an extended layoff she triumphantly reemerged on the music scene at the age of eighty two, returning to the stage and studio. A true jazz pioneer, survivor, and admirable example of class, let us remember her name.
