On the Next ATJ: After International Women's Day, a Spotlight on Women in Jazz

mary_lou_williams__gottlieb_09231__-_crop.jpg

Marian McPartland and Maria Schneider. Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Norah Jones and Esperanza Spalding. Jane Ira Bloom and Ingrid Jensen. Mary Halvorson and Shirley Scott. Carla Bley and Dinah Washington. Toshiko Akiyoshi and Anat Cohen. Kris Davis and Mary Lou Williams (shown here). And on and on. If you think women have played only a limited role in the history of jazz, then your awareness of this music is, in itself, limited. And for the next All This Jazz, beginning at 9pm on Saturday the 11th -- and in the wake of International Women's Day, which was last Wednesday -- our thematic hour (running from 11pm till midnight) will be Women in Jazz.

Every Saturday night, right here on KWGS / Public Radio 89.5, ATJ delivers three hours of recent and classic jazz, across a range of styles, from 9 o'clock till midnight. We also offer a 7pm re-airing of our show on Sunday evenings, on Jazz 89.5-2, which is the KWGS all-jazz HD Radio channel.

From Don Cherry to Don Byron, Gerry Mulligan to Geri Allen, and Kenny Wheeler to Kenny Barron, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we dig sharing the same with our listeners. And elsewhere in our next show, we'll hear great tracks from the likes of Miles Davis, Craig Taborn, Nicholas Payton, and Pepper Adams.

Join us!

(Also, note that ATJ playlist information can usually be found here, although you'll have to scroll down a bit...and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thank you.)
