DIVA Jazz Orchestra, 2009, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: By now you have heard of the all-women Diva Jazz Orchestra led by drummer Maricle. If not, get ready to hear some of the finest musicians on the jazz scene! This outing is a live session recorded at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola in New York. This is more than a nostalgic trip to the Big Band era or a novelty for the women’s movement. These are formidable jazz musicians, educators and performers who are helping to usher large jazz ensembles back onto the music mainstream. Their performance is dynamic and entertaining. There are sixteen songs including “I’d Rather Drink Muddy Water” featuring vocalist Carmen Bradford and “TPN Blues”.
