Women in Jazz

These notes are based on the Foundation’s research materials for books and articles about jazzwomen worldwide.

For simplicity we have divided these into six sections.

The text is in WORD in order to facilitate transition into documents for www.

In a separate file there are

  1. General Introduction – Researching Women in Jazz
  2. Brief History of Jazz – “blues women” – arrival in Europe
  3. The Mediterranean: Women and Jazz in Italy and Turkey
  4. Jazzwomen in Serbia, Germany and Great Britain
  5. Final Reflections and suggestion for further reading
  6. Bibliographies

Also enclosed is a link to an American Website for Women in Jazz. Although not omni-comprehensive of the subject, this could be included in own website as further study material.
