Jazz musicians are currently fighting for pensions and female musicians have to fight the glass ceiling as well.
It is my hope that you will see the importance of this effort and find the need to assist us in our quest to educate, honor and salute to the TDWR Women in Music during Women's History Month in this our 10th Anniversary.
Honoring Jazz Patroness Cobi Narita, The Jazz Foundation's Wendy Oxenhorn and the former co-producers of the LADY GOT CHOPS FESTIVAL: Lillithe Meyers and her daughter business partner Tiecha Merritt.
