It's Jazz at Flushing Town Hall in Flushing, Queens. 

Clarence "Clyde" Bullard- Son of Atlantic Records executive Clarence “CB” Bullard, who helped the careers of Paula Abdul, Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack, The Rolling Stones, Donny Hathaway, etc- has been surrounded by music since he was a child. Clyde was introduced to the business of music by his father and his uncle Bill Withers, the Grammy Winning singer and songwriter who penned “Lean on Me”.

Clyde is a professional bassist and  producer at Flushing Town Hall since 1998, Clyde has produced  world class artists.

Barbara Rosene has built an unequalled reputation for interpreting the great music of the 1920s and 30s. She is a passionate vocalist whose interpretations uncover the richness of jazz classics through the subtle, skilled delivery of one truly in love with the genre she sings.

Rosene is personally committed to the significance of jazz music in American Popular Song and in America’s roots and spirit. Finding the soul of a song and linking its heart and expression with her own story brings this seductive blonde singer the satisfaction of a career well-spent. Recently she has begun lecturing on The Tin Pan Alley composers and early women jazz singers.

Malkia Granville is the director of Communications at Flushing Town Hall.
