In her career, Jane Bunnett (who doubles on soprano-sax and flute) has done a great deal to help Cuban musicians, from featuring them in her groups to raising money for those in Cuba to get instruments.
From July 5, 1997, she performs “Midnight Theme” with its composer, the masterful pianist Frank Emilio (1921-2001).
On this heated performance, Bunnett takes a very fluent flute solo and then pianists Frank Emilio and Hilario Duran interact with each other and trade off in exciting fashion.
