Extraordinary jazz by 101 women composers! From bebop to blues, from swing to global jazz styles, Terri Lyne Carrington’s collection includes a wide variety of well-known works and hidden gems, within a broad range of jazz and jazz-adjacent styles.
The compositions span nearly a century, including Lil Hardin Armstrong’s work from 1922 to songs written in 2021 by recent Berklee graduates. It features 101 compositions from a remarkable range of acknowledged titans, young visionaries and unsung heroes in jazz.
We added this, not only because we see the value of the publication that helps bring into focus the omission of women composers from the history of jazz, but also because the music in it is simply amazing.
These compositions are supplementary and alternatives to the “jazz standard” canon that has served students, teachers and professionals throughout the development of jazz music. Developed by our team, Genius Jamtracks sets ‘new standards’ to the practice tools available for music students and musicians in terms of sound quality and technology. We have developed this software with love and respect to music, and every note that is played. The addition of the “New Standards”, offers incredibly beautiful compositions but it’s also a statement – not yet outdated.
