PR U3A Jazz Appreciation Group – April Meeting

Due to holidays, and for other reasons, there was only four members at this month’s meeting when Avril covered some of the contributions of women in the history of jazz music.

Starting with Lill Hardin-Armstrong in 1926, and progressing through Patricia Baker ‘s “Smash” recorded in Chicago in 2013, to Ute Lemper’s “Berlin Cabaret Songs” CD of 1996 from the decadent early 1930’s Berlin.

Avril ended with two songs by Nina Simone.

We still have one or two vacancies in the Jazz Appreciation Group.
