Let’s Listen to… Women in Jazz

6:30 PM, Montclair Public Library & Foundation

Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan…Household names, rightly so. But the female voice in jazz goes far beyond vocals. As composers, instrumentalists and bandleaders, women have created some of our most compelling music. And today they are at the forefront, taking jazz in new directions.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Seed Artists follows our full-house opener with a listening session celebrating the past, present and future of women in jazz. Join us to listen to and learn about great music, and meet other people who want to do the same.

Renowned pianist/composer/bandleader Diane Moser will join series curator Peter Bodge to spin you through their playlist, answer your questions, and hang out. We have a new interactive format, and a healthy take-home list of recommended recordings and readings.

The Let’s Listen series explores jazz in its many facets. First Friday every month, new theme every session. Refreshments served.
