I spoke about the Washington Women in Jazz Festival and performed in Gothenburg, Sweden this past week. It was a surreal and wonderful whirlwind of amazing people and musicians. I saw 5 different bands, performed for an audience of advocates for women’s equality in music, and met so many wonderful Swedes. It was an incredible first trip to Sweden, and a HUGE thank you to Marie and Katarina for inviting me! I hope to get back there soon.

*The first day I was there I met Zara in the Kultur i Vast (Culture in the West of Sweden) office and we had an impromptu jam session in the middle of the afternoon. Of course, we had to play something from the most famous collaboration of Swedish/American Jazz, Bill Evans and Monica Zetterlund’s “Some Other Time”. Here’s a clip I hastily recorded. Enjoy!
