Momentum: Portraits of Women in Motion

With pianist/composer Ellen Rowe, alto saxophonist Lisa Parrott, tenor saxophonist Virginia Mayhew, baritone saxophonist Kaleigh Wilder, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, trombonist Melissa Gardiner, bassist Marion Hayden, and drummer Allison Miller.

“For the listener, the experience is certainly life-enhancing… as good as mainstream jazz gets these days.” – DownBeat magazine, Editor’s Choice review

Renowned pianist and composer Ellen Rowe makes her Dizzy’s Club debut to celebrate her acclaimed new album, Momentum: Portraits of Women in Motion. Each track on the record is a musical portrait of a woman whom Rowe considers a personal hero, from musicians and sports legends to unsung civil rights heroes, politicians, and advocates, including Mary Lou Williams, Geri Allen, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Carole King, Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Michelle Obama, Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall, Joan Benoit Samuelson, Gunhilde Swanson, and Meghan Canfield Laws. For tonight’s performance, Rowe is bringing many of the phenomenal musicians from the recording to perform in groups ranging in size from quintet to octet. Utilizing the great versatility and variety afforded by these world-class musicians, multiple band formats, and diversity of women being paid tribute, Rowe has crafted an expansive and highly expressive new jazz experience.
