Though often overlooked, the contributions of women have had, and continue to have, a dynamic impact on jazz. Their influence can be seen in the ways they’ve embraced opportunities for creative expression in the multifaceted field of jazz. As performers and conductors, as educators, and as producers and directors of jazz festivals, they’ve made their mark but still struggled for recognition on par with their male counterparts. To kick off our Jazz Appreciation Month festivities, the SJMO will highlight contributions to the field of jazz by select women, including Mary Lou Williams, the Sweethearts of Rhythm, Amy Shook, Leigh Pilzer, Jennifer Krupa, Amy Bormet, and those who have contributed off the concert stage.
