About

“Ladies Sing the Blues” is an exploration of the women who made up the essence of the blues: Bessie Smith, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin. This evening will feature three ladies from three different generations who have made a substantial contribution to the legacy of the jazz-blues genre, Denise Perrier, Kim Nalley and Tiffany Austin.

Kim Nalley has been called “legendary” and a “San Francisco institution,” awarded “Most Influential African American in the Bay Area” in 2005 and “Best Jazz Group” in 2013.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
