A Message from our Artistic Director - Sweet Baby J'ai
The Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival continues to create stories of its own – anecdotes that you’ll be able to share many years from now about women in jazz. Regarding her experience at our 2017 Festival, legendary jazz vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur described it as, “One of the greatest moments in music. It was very magical. There is an intuitive quality that happens when women get together.”
A collection of extraordinary musicians have descended on sunny Palm Springs for a compelling musical tapestry with delightful surprises. Female artists, singers, instrumentalists, composers and arrangers have come from near and far to celebrate their contributions to jazz in all of its forms —straight ahead, contemporary, funk, blues and Latin. Palm Springs Women's Jazz Festival has offered concerts for audiences who don’t often see this kind of unique and special coming together - from multi-platinum award-winning performers to rising stars.
On behalf of Lucy and Gail, our Board of Directors, our wonderful staff and volunteers, committed donors, partners, sponsors, musicians, venues, and ticket buyers who support our efforts to bring women’s jazz and blues to Palm Springs and beyond -Thank You! We hope you will enjoy our Virtual Concerts, until we can get together live again.
