“The Girls in the Band”

I’m looking forward to seeing this new documentary (great review in today’s NY Times) about just how hard it used to be for women in jazz. This is on my mind especially after my interview last night with the brilliant saxophonist Tia Fuller at the Apollo Theater. Tia will appear there on Saturday in a show called “Great Jazz Women of the Apollo” that includes pianist Geri Allen, singer Dianne Reeves, and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington. The show’s a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and other great ladies of jazz.
