It’s been a rough one. As we are wrapping it up, please consider Washington Women in Jazz in your year-end giving. We are pivoting to a virtual festival in 2021, creating amazing new collaborations with Key of She Jazz, and Mujeres de Iberoamerica en el jazz.
As strange as it seems I am excited. Excited to share our music on the global stage and to strengthen our awesome community. We will be there for you in the months ahead, and we appreciate you being there for us. (Also we have lovely thank you gifts ?
Please give if you can:

Warren Shadd, drummer and nephew of Shirley Horn, asked me to perform a few songs for his Christmas FB series. I chose a couple of my original holiday hits, “Give me love at Christmas time”, and “Lonely New Year’s Day”. The first was born of my distaste for Christmas commercialism, and the second is a reflection on a balmy Los Angeles holiday I spent alone. Thanks to the wonderful Nicole Saphos for spending some time with these tunes, and adding lovely harmonies! Happy Holidays!

Happy New Year! Oh, I’m a week late…Had a great trip to NYC this week for a little thing called JAZZ and now I’m back to DC and ready to run with Washington Women in Jazz Festival 2012. While I finish up the schedule for this years events (hint:every quadrant will be included!) please turn your attention to the inaugural! Young! Artist! Contest!
Applications are due January 31st, so make sure to tell anyone I haven’t harassed that they need to get their materials in ASAP! I’m looking forward to checking out all the music I’ve already been sent. Thanks to Karine Chapdelaine for the fabulous idea to get younger women involved!
