Women of Jazz [03/25 – 04/01]

26 Mar

This week we’ll explore the feminine side of the most quintessential American music style, Jazz.  Women have broadened the appeal of instrumental jazz since legends such as Ella Fitzgerald first came on the scene, and today, a vibrant group of international female musicians in countries as diverse as Brazil, Mexico, Canada and Greece lend their own flavor to the genre.
