About this show

Called "a swinging honors course in womankind" by San Francisco magazine, Wild Women of Song is a captivating showpiece celebrating the lives, times and music of the often-invisible women songwriters of the Tin Pan Alley era. Projecting carefully collected archival photos, while telling the stories of these women, Pamela Rose brings vast musical experience to an emotionally dynamic program that showcases many well-known songs from the Great American Songbook including, "Wild Women (Don't Get the Blues)" (Ida Cox), "I'm in the Mood for Love" (Dorothy Fields), "Can't We Be Friends?" (Kay Swift) and "What a Diff'rence a Day Made" (Maria Grever). Jazz vocalist Rose - backed by her 4-piece band - artfully delivers a cultural retrospective, adding historical elements to the performance. Rose's band includes: Tammy Hall (piano), Ruth Davies (bass), Kristen Strom (saxophone) and Kent Bryson (drums).
