Carolina de la Norte Juicy Flute Enjoy the exuberant and joyful performance of Juicy Flute Groovy Jazz Quartet, led by flutist, singer and composer Carolena de la Norte. While paying tribute to the jazz masters and standards, the group focuses on the groove, making it enjoyable and entertaining for all, yet incorporating top-notch musicians with exceptional improvisational skills. Carolena's advanced improvisational abilities are ignited by her dynamic stage presence and an electrifying live performance.
Carolena is also an accomplished classical flautist, having been featured as special guest star in classical concert settings as well as performing in chamber groups and frequent solo flute programs. She also plays the Latin repertoire with a kick-ass vitality. Starting at age 8, Carolena began playing flute and taking private lessons, then joined in rock and Latin bands at age 14, then furthering her studies at the lauded jazz institute Berklee College of Music in Boston. She then performed with many top Blues musicians including John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins and Son Seals.
