Review for WOMEN IN JAZZ SOUTH FLORIDA INC, Oakland Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

I am a professional jazz musician, singer, composer and lyricist born in the US and currently residing in Italy. The non-profit Women in Jazz South Florida is the first oganization I have joined as the mission is to promote the unique and precious artform that is Jazz on an International level. In my professional life I have personally strived to make the music, its origins and its significance known to the public and the media. To achieve this most effectively it calls for a committed, energetic and prepared leadership such as that provided by Joan Cartwright. She has documented the history of this music and moves forward to protect this music from whims, fashion and dilettantes.

I am proud to be part of an iniative guaranteeing that Jazz will endure, as it should, as the rich tapestry of Its United States, and Black origins, offered freely to an ideally free world. As it was said many times during the tumultuous century during which it was born, [Jazz] or Rhythm saved the world! So be it.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I am the first member in Italy and am working to establish mermbership here.
