  • Description

    Sisters of Jazz is a dynamic all-female ensemble consisting of bandleader and renowned vocalist Anna Pauline, Danish Music Award-nominee saxophonist Pernille Bevort, accomplished trombonist Lis Wessberg, virtuosic pianist Catrine Ullerup Frolund, versatile bassist Ida Hvid and Ben Webster Prize winner, drummer Benita Haastrup. The project began in 2014, when jazz singer, composer and lyricist Anna Pauline, as a bandleader, was commissioned to put together a band consisting solely of female musicians for a concert during International Women's Day. The concert, which was a great success, led to the formation of the current Sisters of Jazz.

    On this recording, they embark on a musical journey that celebrates and pays tribute to the contributions of oft-forgotten female jazz composers and musicians like Nancy Hamilton, Ann Ronell, Marian McPartland and Mary Lou Williams - just to name a few!
