This Feature is a tribute to National Woman's Day and this Orchestra led by Maria Schneider is one of the leading Jazz organizations of today. Maria's music reflects her creativity and her influences which include the great master Gil Evans. Her orchestra is full of all-star players like trumpeter Ingrid Jenson,Steve Wilson on alto and soprano saxophones, tenor saxophonist Rich Perry, guitarist Ben Monder, Frank Kimbrough, piano, Clarence Penn on drums and so many others. Her music is evocative, moody and always full of wonderful colours and textures and this award winning album called "Sky Blue" is her best at this point. We'll hear four compositions as our Feature.....the music of The Maria Schneider Orchestra.....The Jazz Show's tribute to International Woman's Day.
