“Their conversations range far beyond the biographical—to their feelings, motivations, musical approaches, and attitudes. These women were obviously comfortable with their ... questioners. [Enstice and Stockhouse] came prepared, having delved deeply into the music and history of each, bringing them closer to the essence of each musician.” —from the Preface by Cobi Narita and Paul Ash “Jazzwomen includes many artists who are not covered in earlier books and also reveals new information about artists who are. In addition, the interview format used in Jazzwomen provides the reader with each artist’s own words, permeated with a warmth and immediacy not typically found in author narratives. Jazzwomen is a much-needed book.” —David N. Baker, Distinguished Professor of Music and Chairman, Jazz Department, Indiana University School of Music; and Artistic and Musical Director, Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra Between 1995 and 2000, Wayne Enstice and Janis Stockhouse interviewed dozens of women jazz instrumentalists and vocalists. Jazzwomen collects 21 of the most fascinating interviews. The participants discuss everything—their personal lives, musical training and inspirations, recordings, relationships with other musicians, the music industry, sexism on the bandstand—and often make candid and revealing statements. At the end of each interview is a recommended discography compiled by the authors. Every jazz listener, musician, teacher, and student will be captivated by interviews with Marian McPartland, Regina Carter, Abbey Lincoln, Cassandra Wilson, Diana Krall, and their peers. Includes a sampler CD with complete works by several of the artists, including Jane Ira Bloom and Ingrid Jensen. Read more Show Less

Montreal Gazette

"Jazzwomen presents a wealth of experiences and life stories, providing a multifaceted view of 20thcentury jazz history.... [A]ll the women interviewed... share a profound and driving passion for jazz that has defined their lives, and, without exception, the interviewers draw out that passion and zero in on the stories that best illustrate these women's relationships to music." —Montreal Gazette

Booklist
At their best, question-and-answer interviews can communicate personality as impressively as the best fiction... Enstice and Stockhouse bat close to a thousand with their interviews of 21 women who have made their way, often to the pinnacle of acclaim, in the male-dominated world of jazz... Each woman sounds unique, and as any jazz lover would tell you, that's what makes each of them a jazzwoman. Sublime.
Wall Street Journal
illuminating. . . .
—Nat Hentoff
The Whole Note
This collection of interviews reveals so much about jazz that at first you could overlook that all the subjects are women. Each interview . . . covers a remarkable amount of material, autobiographical and aesthetic. . . .

Anyone interested in this book is definitely in for a treat.
Library Journal
Having spoken with numerous musicians over a period of six years, the authors (educators in music and art) have culled 21 interviews for this book focusing on women prominent in jazz. Thankfully, these aren't just pat question-and-answer sessions, as both authors show a depth of knowledge commensurate with that of the musicians they interviewed. What results are lively interchanges in which the musicians feel comfortable enough to go off on interesting tangents and the interviewers are able to follow them closely. The musicians range widely in age, and their perspectives offer much insight into their own music and into music as a historical whole. Those interviewed run the gamut from soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom to pianist Marian McPartland, with particularly intriguing contributions from organist Shirley Scott and pianist Marilyn Crispell. A wonderfully expressive contribution to jazz literature, this is recommended for all libraries.-William G. Kenz, Minnesota State Univ., Moorhead Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
