That makes TONIGHT'S SOLD OUT Jazz Live a homecoming showcase and a chance to see someone truly on the rise. Hear what the world knows, this deal is for real.

|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.
