In 2020, for the first time, woman musicians won half of the instrumental categories in the Jazz Journalists Association's annual awards program. To celebrate Women's History Month, we are going to turn over the next several programs to women artists, whose numbers are steadily growing within the jazz ranks, making the music stronger. This hour of Jazz at 100 Today! will explore the music of All-Women groups—Terri Lyne Carrington & The Mosaic Project, Monika Herzig's Sheroes, Jane Bunnett and Maqueque, The Tiptons Saxophone Quartet and Artemis. Jazz Women in the next hour of Jazz at 100 Today!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
