BLACK WOMEN IN JAZZ & ARTS AWARDS
This new movement in the Atlanta area is advancing and shining a light on black women in jazz and the arts. Sha Battle, the founder of the Black Women In Jazz & Arts Awards has established an organization that is creating a greater awareness of the many vital contributions that African American female artists have made in the past, present and to the future of jazz. They celebrate the awesome work of known artists, spotlight the up-and-coming artists, and honor the sophisticated ladies who present such phenomenal work but who may have gotten lost in the mélange. Black Women In Jazz Day is March 1, 2015, and is celebrated by this organization with a weekend of empowerment events and an annual black tie awards gala that features a night of glamour and elegance, showcasing the immense talent black women have contributed to jazz and the arts.

SUMMER HORNS was an amazing top notch production. Awesome job recreating the funk sax/horn sections of the 70s with the latest and greatest players. We loved the diversity of the show, it was very entertaining. Summer Horns was pure energy and incredible horn riffs. One World Theater in Austin will never be the same. This Saxy team included DAVE KOZ, MINDI ABAIR, RICHARD ELLIOT & GERALD ALBRIGHT. This was the hottest jazz show of the year! They played tribute to some of the greatest horn sections of all time… EARTH, WIND & FIRE, CHICAGO, JAMES BROWN, STEVIE WONDER, DAVE BRUBECK, TOWER OF POWER AND SLY & THE FAMILY STONE. You have to catch this Summer Horns show in a city near you, its flaming HOT.
