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!
