Featuring five extraordinarily talented female artists from various musical backgrounds, HER was originally conceived for this year’s Women’s History Month, but this special project is fortunately being reprised at Dizzy’s. HER performs original compositions by members of the group, as well as those of prior generations, such as Dorothy Ashby and Betty Carter. The instrumentation, in combination with Sarah Elizabeth Charles’ unique vocal sensibility, makes for a beautiful whole that can’t be compared to any other group. With no recordings or additional planned performances, this is a rare opportunity to catch something unusual and valuable in jazz.
