Chicks rule - especially those with a penchant for hard-swinging big-band jazz like this band! I thoroughly enjoyed every note of this CD, and the charts by Tommy Newsom are perfect for the talents of Sherrie Maricle and her killer lineup of musicians.

I write these words just as we learned of Tommy having just passed away, because he was a brilliant musical genius, and his arrangements for this group hit the spot (the Nat Cole medley was my favorite one of all the tracks). I hope that when they hit the studio next time, they get another first-rate chart man on board. Let's hear more!!!

In all fairness to the great musicians on this CD, you should really listen to it before reading anything about the band, the leader or the musicians. This is a great swinging album with first rate charts, great solos and tight ensemble playing. Clearly these musicians have been playing together for a long time and they together play as one. The leader, drummer Sherrie Maricle and the other musicians in the band are all women and I hope that someday it won't even need to be mentioned. If this was a review of the Basie band, the gender of the musicians wouldn't be mentioned and nobody would be surprised that the band sounded great. But we still have a lot of gender issues in the world of jazz and women jazz musicians are still very much in the minority. So it needs to be noted that this is indeed a jazz band of great musicians who happen to be women and that they swing, play hard and sound as good as or even better than the Basie band in my opinion. Why are there still so few women in jazz and why do they have to considered "women in jazz" instead of just jazz musicians? Hopefully, this is starting to change as the new generation of young women gets exposed to jazz in the school systems and are encouraged by their band instructors to play instruments other than the traditional female instruments of vocals and piano. I recently spent 4 days at the annual IAJE Jazz Educator's conference in New York City where there were wall to wall jazz musicians and educators on 3 floors of the Hilton and Sheraton Hotels. There were over 200 concerts, seminars and workshops over the course of 4 days and there were a lot of women and girls playing in bands and attending as students.Read more ›

If I didn't already own this CD, I would have bought it from reading that single review. I DID purchase another ("I Believe In You") through the

excellent srvices of cmessner --and wrote my own review on that one.

Yo... most hard-working musicians NEVER think in terms of "gender," but

that doesn't seem to influence the chauvinists who are always out to put

down and detract from the artistry of great players who "happen to be

women."

And, by the way, all of you bias-bathed gooblatrons out there: Why don't

you focus your negative assessments on some of the truly bad playing and

arrangements that come flooding out from over-rated MALE performers?

("Oh, no, that might be deemed "sexist" or "politically incorrect"!)

Stop seeing music through hose-colored glasses.
