The contributions of women to the jazz landscape are far-reaching, from the blues, folk music, and the Great American Songbook, through the swing and bebop eras, and beyond. For our Women’s History Month series, we will highlight some of the extraordinary songwriters, composers, and arrangers who not only penned enduring hits, but also stood shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. In our first class, trombonist Natalie Cressman - an alumnus of our award-winning High School All Stars program - shares the remarkable work of one of jazz music’s unsung heroines, trombonist and arranger Melba Liston. We then explore the bluesy and soulful side of the music of African American folk singer Odetta, with our very own Bay area cultural icon Linda Tillery. Pianist Tammy Hall returns to highlight one of the leading pioneers in American jazz, the legendary Mary Lou Williams. And to cap off our celebrated series, the dynamic Pamela Rose returns with her fabulous retrospective on the many hitmakers who were so often disregarded. Join us in acknowledging the many phenomenal contributions of women in American music.

2017 marks the centennial of one of the most creative and distinct voices in jazz. Thelonious Monk was not only a principle architect of bebop, his music pushed well beyond the boundaries of genre and style, leaving us a legacy of some of jazz music’s most recorded works. A legendary figure synonymous with the development of bebop and one of the most idiosyncratic composers in jazz history, Monk penned many tunes now considered standards, including “Blue Monk,” “Well You Needn’t” “Epistrophy,” “Crepuscule with Nellie,” “Bye-Ya,” “Straight No Chaser” and more. For this series, we will focus on many of his most indelible compositions, and explore his often complex and intriguing life.

*Note that the classes on Oct 18th and Nov 8th begin at 7:30pm and take place at the SF Conservatory of Music, 50 Oak Street, SF.

Adams has composed for a wide range of settings including chamber ensembles, orchestra, film, television, voice, and electronics. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music in recognition of his orchestral piece Become Ocean, which was also awarded a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Classical Composition. He received a second GRAMMY for his percussion piece Inuksuit, an outdoor sound experience featuring 9-99 percussionists. Radiolab described Adams' works as "immersive listening experiences that fully take you in ... a soundtrack for the end of the world."
