This Is Jazz 2015 Celebrates Womens History Month with Women In Jazz in Carlsbad
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: March 11, 2015
This is Jazz! 2015, a partnership between the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office and San Diego's Jazz 88.3, continues Saturday, March 14 at 4PM in Carlsbad City Library's Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium with a celebration of Women's History Month as San Diego's Queen of Boogie Woogie (and Jazz 88.3 weekend host) Sue Palmer and Jazz 88.3 host Janine Harty present "Women In Jazz". 


The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz says ""Women have participated on every instrument, in every style, and in every era of jazz history. Yet, with the notable exception of singers and a number of pianists, female jazz musicians have been continuously overlooked in the most prestigious areas of jazz practice, marketing, and documentation." Sue and Janine attempt to set the record straight with a program illustrating, through both music and words, the contribution of women in Jazz from pre-1920's through today.
