They wiggled, they jiggled, they wore low cut gowns and short shorts, they kowtowed to the club owners and smiled at the customers ... and they did it all, just to play the music they loved. In the 1930s and 1940s, hundreds of women musicians toured the country in glamorous all-girl-bands, while others played side by side with their male counterparts. Yet by the mid-'50s female jazz musicians had literally disappeared from the workplace; their names, their contributions to music, completely forgotten. In celebration of International Women's Day, the Rhythm & Rye will feature a dazzling night of Northwest jazz women. Vocalists Susan Tuzzolino and Joanne Green have pulled together a veritable who's who of musicians from across the region. Listen as they assemble and reassemble in the lounge for this sizzling night of jazz.
