Have you noticed that, as of late, there's been a large influx of very talented female jazz musicians on the scene? i.e. altoist Grace Kelly, pianist Champian Fulton, vocalist Nikki Yanovsky, etc... It's a pretty cool situation, as the jazz world, for along time, has been comprised of mainly men playing on their respective instruments. But now, the ladies have arrived on the scene in a very big way! Champian Fulton is a great example of this! She swings harder than a lot of male jazz musicians do on piano! Sorry guys. Just telling the truth. I say to Champian Fulton, "You Go Girl!" She blows me away. In particular, her rendition of My Heart Stood Still is a perfect example of her love of Bud Powell!
