Quarterly Artist Highlight:

This quarter's spotlight is on legendary Sax player, Fred Staton of the Harlem Blues and Jazz Band who is turning 100 on Valenine's Day!

Fred has performed with Billy Eckstine, Brownie “Sticks” McGhee, Art Blakey and Errol Garner. He has also backed the Harlem Dance Troupe, “Mama Lu Parks and her Savoy Lindy Hoppers,” a group with which The Harlem Blues and Jazz Band had a long association. As the brother of Dakota Staton, a famous jazz singer in the 1950s, he frequently shared the stage with his sister. He is also the leader of his own Gospel group, “The Sounds of Deliverance.”
