Tales from the far Side 21.11.19 Female Jazz Trumpeters

On this edition I try to explore the exciting development and sound of young female trumpeters in Jazz coming on strongly in the new century and breaking down gender boundaries. I also dig into the history books on the search for the first female pioneers on this male dominated instrument. You can hear music by Valaida Snow, Clora Bryant, Ingrid Jensen, Laura Jurd, Yazz Ahmed, Airelle Besson and Barbara Donald.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
