Nina_simone_forever_young_small

In the 1960s, as the civil-rights movement and other cultural changes gained momentum, a generation of women artists made their way through a jazz world that had long been less than hospitable to their aims.  Singers such as Nina Simone and Jeanne Lee, composer Carla Bley, organist Shirley Scott, harpist Dorothy Ashby and fellow harpist and pianist Alice Coltrane, and trumpeter Barbara Donald all left behind notable recordings from this decade as they expanded the role of women in jazz in ways both traditional and groundbreaking.  "Jazz Women of the 1960s" offers a musical survey of these artists, including Nina Simone's civil-rights anthem "Young, Gifted and Black," Alice Coltrane's Eastern-religion-inspired "Huntington Ashram Monastery," Jeanne Lee's take on an Ellington classic, and an early interpretation of Carla Bley's jazz standard "Ida Lupino."

Jazz Women of the 1940s

From WFIU | Part of the Night Lights Classic Jazz: Specials series | 59:01

An hour-long program of classic jazz, featuring women instrumentalists who thrived in the upside-down jazz world of wartime America.

Billie-rogers_small

The history of women in jazz is an uneasy narrative. Here’s a music that acted as such a powerful force for racial integration in American society, and yet when it comes to gender, there was a barrier for many decades in the jazz world. Women singers were tolerated and even spotlighted, especially with the advent of the big band era, but instrumentalists had a much tougher time of it. Many male jazz musicians, writers, and fans believed that women could not play jazz, or at least play it as well as men. When women instrumentalists did get to perform and record, the response was often, “You play pretty good…for a woman.”

In this Night Lights show we’ll look at some jazz women of the 1940s, a decade when the cultural upheaval of World War II created more opportunities for female jazz artists, as the ranks of male musicians were depleted by the draft, and band leaders and nightclub owners were forced to expand their employment horizons. Featured artists include pianist and composer-arranger Mary Lou Williams , trumpeter Billie Rogers , vibraphonist Marjorie Hyams , the International Sweethearts of Rhythm big band, and pianists Hazel Scott and Beryl Booker .

From Bluesnet Radio | Part of the Bluesnet Radio Special Presentation series | 59:00

one hour of classic Dolly Parton songs that you don't hear much these days

Inthegoodold_small a Special Presentation from Bluesnet Radio:
It seems like Dolly Parton is everywhere these days, but the songs on which she built her career - - many of which appeared on the country charts for years - - don't get played on country radio these days, and she doesn't sing them when she's on TV now. This special presentation from Bluesnet Radio is an hour of some of those songs, songs that offered country humor, rural wisdom, social commentary, a little melodrama, and a dose of good old-fashioned doom and gloom. Included are touching autobiographical songs like "In The Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad)," songs that conjure thoughts of the lives of others, like "Daddy's Moonshine Still," a wild duet with her singing partner Porter Wagoner,  and tragi-comic songs like "I Don't Want To Throw Rice." What does she want to throw instead?? Find out, in this one-hour program "In The Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad) - Good Old Songs From Dolly Parton," classic recordings by a truly unique artist, including her very first record at age 13, offered with informative, but light and brief, commentary.
