Dick Sudhalter has had an unusual dual career as a superior trad-oriented cornetist and as a jazz journalist. The crowning achievement of his latter career was the co-authorship (with Philip Evans and William Dean-Myatt) of the superb Bix Beiderbecke biography Bix: Man and Legend. Less known is that Sudhalter has long been a fine improviser himself. He grew up in Boston and played in England in the 1960s (organizing the New Paul Whiteman Orchestra). Since returning to the U.S., Sudhalter has freelanced on the classic jazz scene, played with the New York Jazz Repertory Company and the Classic Jazz Quartet, and recorded for several labels including Audiophile and Challenge. ~ Scott Yanow
