For Release: August 24, 2014
Review by Malvin Massey, Jr., 8/24/2014

Feature CD of the Week

The Diva Jazz Orchestra is unique in many different ways.

For one, they are one of the few intact touring ensembles in the world. Another is that they are an ensemble of 15 talented and extremely versatile musicians, who just happen to be women.

Their latest album, Diva: "A Swingin' Life," is reminiscent of the classic swing bands of swing era. They are led by drummer Sherrie Maricle, jazz musician and educator.

This gig is another collaboration with the historic Manchester Craftsman's Guild. This is a New York project that reflex the best jazz traditions with a fresh and energetic style.

This is the Feature CD of the Week.
