7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This all-star ensemble of female musicians takes us on a journey back in time to celebrate and honor the women in blues music. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind collaboration between Desert Blues Revival and the team behind the Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival.
Critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, and actress, Sweet Baby J’ai takes audiences on a journey through time from the beginning of recorded music to present day. “The History of Women in Blues” combines music, drama, and visual arts. It includes historical videos and photos, and J’ai shares anecdotes that inspire you.

From Da’ Blues and the rise of the Harlem Renaissance to the turbulence of the sixties and beyond, this tribute to some of the most iconic singers in jazz and blues builds understanding and appreciation for the history and culture of the female experience in American music.

Recently inducted into the California Jazz & Blues Museum Hall of Fame and honored as a Living Jazz Legend by the Los Angeles City Council, Sweet Baby J’ai has been described by critics as a “jazz singer,” others as a “blues singer” but all agree that this multi-award winning singer-songwriter is a “storyteller.” Visit her website at www.sweetbabyjai.com
