Karen Joseph, flute player with Eddie Palmieri’s Perfecta II, Charanga America, Los Jovenes del Barrio, Grant Green, and many others.

Her uncle , Alfred Duckett , was the press agent for Mahalia Jackson and Duke Ellington also , for a while. Karen Joseph was born 5 of July 1952, in Brooklyn. 

I saw her play with Palmieri when she was with his band before 2005. This clip is Karen playing with a selection of local NYC musicians at Taino Towers, Harlem, circa 2015.
