The Hampton Sisters: A Jazz Tribute
By Jack Gilfoy, producer

Pianist Aletra Hampton and her sister, bassist Virtue Hampton-Whitted, each with a passion for music and a zest for living, recorded their first album, which was released in November 2003. These central Indiana jazz legends have been making music since the 1930s and remain a living testament to the golden age of jazz, when jazz was new, raw and laced with a rebellious spirit. This digitally produced compact disc is a must-have for lovers of jazz and the retro sound. Featuring fifteen songs on one disc, the CD comes with a companion 20-page booklet, including vintage photos and the history of the Hampton Family and the Hampton Sisters.

CD, 72 minutes. Indiana Historical Society, 2003. ISBN 087195172X.
