As the 1990s bring the 20th century to a close, women musicians continue to increase their visibility in the Jazz world and to erode the notion of gender distinction imposed by many male Jazz critics and performers for much of music history, though the pace of change could seem inexorable at times. There are a lot more women playing and coming into their own, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington told author Leslie Gourse in 1994. It is no longer a matter of women being fashionable or fad. It really serious. When a woman says she is play, you have to listen and find out now. In previous decades, important histories of Women in Jazz like Linda Dahls ' Stormy Weather and Sally Placksins ' American Women in Jazz had been publish, and Kansas City had hosted a women's Jazz festival from 1978 to 1985. Record companies, too, have begun to take notice of the growing number of women on jazz scene. The Storied Blue Note label, like many other Jazz record labels of the mid-20-century, had recorded very few Women Jazz artists in its heyday, but companys late-20-century reincarnation was a different story, carrying musicians such as singers Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson, and pianists Geri Allen and Renee Rosnes on its roster. Rosnes was a Canadian who moved to New York City in the 1980s and became the pianist of choice for Jazz veterans such as JJ Johnson, Joe Henderson, and James Moody. Wilson had emerged from the experimental 1980s M-Base collective scene, and her first two albums for Blue Note helped reset the concept of modern Jazz-and-popular-song repertoire, drawing on songs by artists such as Neil Young, U2, and Hank Williams. Still, she opens her 1995 album New Moon Daughter with a bold choice associated strongly with Jazz icon Billie Holiday: strange Fruit, haunting 1939 song written as a musical protest against lynching. Diana Krall, like Renee Rosnes Canadian, emerged as both pianist and singer in the 1990s and went on to become one of most popular Jazz-and-popular-song artists on the modern music scene, winning five Grammys in the process. Although she originally wanted to be an astronaut and excel at science, she played Jazz from her adolescence on and attended Bostons ' renowned Berklee School in the early 1980s. Like one of her influences, Nat King Cole, Kralls skill as a piano player tended to be overshadowed by her success as a vocalist, and she has spoken of contending with prejudice that claim that success stems in part from Kralls being marketed as a conventionally attractive woman. Another multiple-Grammy-winner, bandleader and composer Maria Schneider, was protege of legendary arranger Gil Evans and began an ambitious run of recordings that continue into the present. She has become a strong advocate for musicians receiving proper compensation in the why-pay-for-it musical media landscape of the 21st century, and has also been pioneer of what has come to be know as crowd-funding through her releases on Artistshare label beginning in 2004.

Births

The first feature film with soundtrack to be released commercially was Jazz Singer, in October 1927. At time, it was a sensation to hear the voice of the lead actor of the film, Al Jolson, right when he moved his lips. Record Music score was also a new phenomenon. Until then, silent films were accompanied by live orchestras. In Jazz Singer, Al Jonson depicts a Jewish singer who defies his family's traditions to follow his aspirations and become a Broadway star. Addressing not only conflict between traditional values and modernity, 1927 film also deals with clashes between those who believe music should be restricted to religious purposes and those who want to entertain with it-reflecting debates that still exist to this day. In Oscar-winning Film La La Land, struggling Jazz pianist Sebastian Wilder has to position himself between classic Jazz and more popular genres that emerge from those standards later on. The Netflix series Get Down also portrays conflict between an aspiring musician and her religious father. Those issues were already covered in Jazz Singer. Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in 'Born to Be Blue' later on, filmmakers start exploring the lives of Jazz greats, whether in documentary films or motion pictures. Born to Be Blue, which is now opening in German cinemas, is only the most recent one. In many cases, these films combine strong soundtrack and cinematic aesthetics, pleasing both movie and music lovers. Whether Forest Whitaker as Charlie Parker in Clint Eastwood's Bird, Dexter Gordon in Bertrand Tavernier's captivating Film round Midnight or Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in born to Be Blue, these films transmit the true Spirit Of Jazz onto the big screen.
