Topic: Female Jazz Artists

    Female Jazz Artists

    sponsored links

    Hey all-
    I'm doing a small project with one of the local theatre companies here in town and was wanting to pick a few brains. I'm trying to come up with a list of some female Jazz musicians and just wanted to ask for some more recommendations...I have (of course) Alice Coltrane, Mary Lou Williams, Nina Simone, and a few others...who else should I look into?

    Also on a side note: Who are some great female vocalists of Traditional Jewish music? Totally random from the above subject, I know, but it all ties together in my own little brain.

    Yeah, I'm more interested in instrumentalists, but cool!
    I'll especially look into Marian McPartland.

    Has anyone mentioned Diana Krall? Her new album, co-written with her husband Elvis Costello, is excellent.

    For that matter, Costello's autobiographical album about his break-up with his wife and his meeting and falling in love with Krall is a work of smoky jazz genius. But I guess it doesn't qualify for what you're looking for....
