Kokoroko - Band
It is seldom that you see a mixed band that is led by a female. More often females form same-sex bands because they feel excluded by male musicians. A wonderful exception is the U.K. afro-jazz band Kokoroko. The band is led by Sheila Maurice-Grey on trumpet with an all-female brass section of Richie Seviwright on Trombone and Cassie Konishi on sax. We have always assumed that the best female jazz artists are in the U.S. Well it simply isn’t so.
