Abstract:

"The most complete history of women in jazz to date, Stormy Weather put to rest the myth that jazz is a man's vocation only. Women have played, sung, and produced jazz from its earliest beginnings to the present...Linda Dahl fills in the gaps in the history of jazz by including nearly all the women who have contributed to its culture...Based on years of research and scores of interviews, and laced with insightful analyses of all problems from subtle psychological concerns to mundate matters of daily life, the book depicts in rich and diverse detail the lives and art of the jazzwomen. Along the way it vividly re-creates the whole music and culture of jazz itself. Stormy Weather is the definitive book on women in jazz."--Back cover.
