- Dan Levinson and Randy Sandke Present
A Benefit Concert for
RICHARD M. SUDHALTER
Author, Musician, Jazz Historian
Richard M. Sudhalter has played a crucial role in the field of jazz.
An author (Bix: Man and Legend, Lost Chords: White Musicians and their
Contribution to Jazz, Stardust Melody: The Life and Music of
Hoagy Carmichael), musician, historian, researcher, teacher, and
critic, he has been largely unable to perform any of these functions
since suffering a massive stroke in 2003. In addition, he was recently
diagnosed with MSAMultiple System Atrophy. With tremendous medical
bills mounting, his friends Randy Sandke and Dan Levinson, with the
help of Albert Haim and Dorothy Kellogg, are organizing a benefit
concert to help ease his financial burden.
You can do your part by attending the event on
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 from 7-10 p.m. at
ST. PETER'S LUTHERAN CHURCH, 619 Lexington Avenue at 54th Street,
