Women In Jazz: A Bibliography

Biographies, historical overviews, gender-studies perspectives: a list of books (and Night Lights shows) that delve into the story of women jazz artists.

Linda Dahl's STORMY WEATHER remains a cornerstone of women-in-jazz history.

Last year I put together a list of books about jazz capitals of America. March is Women’s History Month, but any time would be good for posting this new list–a first-draft bibliography of books about women in jazz, including both overviews and notable biographies. As with the jazz-capitals compilation, I have read many but by no means all of these books, and comments and suggestions for additions are welcome. A list of some Night Lights shows about women in jazz follows after the bibliography:
