Bertha Hope has been an active force in improvised music since the early 60's. Her long association with pianist/composer Elmo Hope resulted in a host of recorded compositions and arrangements, currently performed by the Elmo Hope Project, in which Bertha is the pianist.
During her long and respectful career, she has continued to present Elmo's music, whether on her recordings or in the many concerts and club appearances she has given. She is also the leader of her own trio (with Walter Booker and Jimmy Cobb), as well as being a member of the group Jazzberry Jam!
