Joan’s parents both had fascinating careers. Her mother Aurelia Wheeldin was a dancer who spent 1924-26 performing at the Moulin Rouge in Paris. Not only did she dance but she worked up an act with another dancer in which they regularly boxed three rounds on stage, causing a sensation. Back in the United States she was a pioneering female boxer, performed in Eubie Blake’s Shufflin’ Along, and appeared at the Apollo Theatre in a production called Harlem before retiring in 1940 to marry Joan’s father.

Joan’s Dad was a physician who became one of the 12 doctors to co-found the Upper Manhattan Medical Group, the first clinic in Harlem that was run entirely by African-Americans. Among his patients through the years were Billie Holiday and Mercer Ellington. The hospital was immortalized by Billy Strayhorn when he wrote “U.M.M.G,” a piece recorded by Duke Ellington.
.On Quiet Conversations- A Duet , the followup to her earlier well received efforts One More Year and I Thought About You, the singer steps boldly into the spotlight on a program of intimate duets with pianist Frank Wilkins.
