The Jazz Ladies

BEDFORD STUYVESANT, BROOKLYN — April was Jazz Appreciation Month, the time of year to honor jazz as an original American art form. Names such as Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard and Sonny Rollins are legendary. But what about the jazz ladies—the female musicians, promoters, performers and women behind the famous jazz men?

Since 1959, the year of the first Grammy Awards ceremony, 262 awards have been presented in 44 different categories honoring the musical accomplishments by jazz performers the year before. According to the Grammy winner’s database, out of those, 216 went to male performers or bands, and only 46 were given to female musicians or bands crediting female musicians or producers. Because an artist can receive several awards, in reality only 26 women in jazz have been honored in 56 years of music celebration.
