-- Sammy Stein's latest work, is all about women in jazz. It charts their journeys, celebrates their presence, hears their voices, wonders at their prowess and revels in their being. We hear from female agents, arrangers, composers, musicians, PR people, radio hosts, record label managers, singers, writers and more. These are their stories; their views of jazz and how they see the future. The established performers share their years of experience whilst those newer to jazz reflect on observations and changes they have seen.
Containing interviews, first-hand accounts and never before seen photos, this book is witness to the generosity, profundity and positivity with which women have responded and the energy they have put into their lives in overcoming challenges.
"....a fabulously insightful look at the jazz industry - a must read." --Jazz Matters
"... the book reads like skipping stones on a pond: one eye-opening narrative leads to a fascinating historical photo that leads to priceless quotes and offbeat reference sources, keeping the reader hungry for the next surprise Stein will veer off to." --Debbie Burke, "Sammy Stein Grabs the Mic with the New Book WOMEN IN JAZZ"http://www.8thhousepublishing.com/books/non-fiction/477-women-in-jazz-sammy-stein
