Jazz Lightyear, 2005, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: Drummer Sherrie Maricle leads the DIVA Jazz Orchestra. They have more in common than being women. They are a well-integrated tight unit that seems to feed off of each other. This tribute is a tribute to Tommy Newsom that includes a couple of strong medleys. If you haven’t yet heard DIVA, this is an excellent sampling including such standouts as Karolina Strassmayer (as), Anat Cohen (ts) and Lisa Parrott (bs).
