Bertha Hope's contributions to mainstream and improvised musical idioms have made her one of the elite among her peers. Wife of the pianist Elmo Hope (1923 – 1967), Bertha has kept their extraordinary teamwork alive through her highly regarded trio and personal performances. In this Piano Jazz session from 1991, Hope performs “In Search of Hope” and McPartland joins for a duet of “I'm Beginning to See the Light.”
