NEW YORK (AP) — There’s a reason why many famous female jazz musicians make the list of the world’s best jazz artists.
There are few more deserving of the title than those who have worked with one of the biggest names in the genre, the great pianist Dizzy Gillespie.
It’s because she brought jazz music to a whole new audience.
Gillespie’s success is a testament to the strength of a genre she pioneered with the band Shearwater and the bluesman Billie Holiday, and it shows the depth of the bond between jazz musicians and their audiences.
There’s something timeless about jazz music and its history that will last a lifetime.
Guthrie’s music is rooted in the blues.
She sang with and for bluesmen, and she recorded with the legendary Joe Williams.
She was a vocalist in the iconic 1964 recording of “You Don’t Have to Look Any Further,” with a line about the “whole body of music that you love so much.”
She is a jazz pianist who made her mark in a genre that has never lost its appeal.
Gauthrie was born in Tennessee in 1902.
Her father, John Gillespie, was a teacher at the Memphis University, where she went on to study music.
Her mother, Nancy, was the mother of pianist Shearwaters and holiday.
Her first solo recording was “I’ll Be There,” and she was invited to record a group called Shear Water at the Royal Oak Music Hall.
Gillespie played in that group with fellow pianist Frank Cottrell.
“She was so good, I thought she was going to be the best player ever,” said Cottrel, who was instrumental in helping Gillespie develop her playing.
She recorded with her with a band called the Shear Waters.
Golgiels first solo album, “The Blues Brothers,” was released in 1929.
It had been recorded in Nashville.
He recorded two more albums: “Gumby’s Blues” and “The New Orleans Blues.”
He recorded his first jazz solo album in 1941, “Jazz for the Soul.”
Guthries second solo album was “The Love of Jazz.”
He played with the Memphis Blues Band, and he also recorded with Joe Williams, a blues legend.
Gilles and Williams had been friends since their days at Memphis.
They met on the piano at the University of Tennessee.
Shear water’s recording of the “Souvenir Blues” from that session went to Williams, who had recorded “The Music of Jazz” with jazz musicians from across the country.
The next decade was a golden age for jazz musicians, as the recording industry exploded.
They began recording and touring with their friends, as well as touring with the big names of the time, like the Duke Ellington and Buddy Guy Band.
Sheer Waters, with her band, released a number of albums and a few singles.
She had an enormous hit single, “Ain’t No Love,” with John Coltrane.
She got the best of Buddy Guy in 1959 when she recorded a cover of his “Cabana Suite.”
Shear Waters also recorded “Amen” and many other hits with the Shears.
Her most popular album was in 1961, “Love’s Gone Away.”
She had a huge hit with “The Greatest Hits.”
Gillie also recorded and toured with her friend and fellow musician, Billie, Holiday, who she had known since the days of Shear waters recordings.
She also recorded several albums with the great jazz pianists and vocalists, including Shearwood, Joe Williams and Joe Louis.
“There’s something in the air, the rhythm of the music, the feel of the voice, that I can relate to,” said Shearwoods longtime bassist and drummer Jackie Davis, a friend of the Sheards since their early days at the university.
“It’s the essence of jazz.
It just gives me joy.”
Gilles jazz career began in 1942.
He started with ShearWater and made his own recordings.
He played in her band called The Shearwolves and recorded the band’s first album, 1963’s “Dancing in the Moonlight.”
He then worked with Williams in a number with the group.
The group made a number, including the album “Sugar Daddy.”
The band went on tour with Shears, with Davis playing with the pianists, and Gillespie with the vocalists.
In 1962, ShearWoods released a jazz record called “The Man with the Blue Eyes,” which included a recording of Gillespie’s solo with Williams.
He also played in the Shearis band, and his albums included the hit song “Love Me Some.”
Gillyes last recording with the musicians was in 1974, when he recorded the song “The Way I Am.”
It was recorded in his Nashville studio with Williams and Coltranes.
He wrote the song for the record.
He was in the studio with Gillespie for three months.
Gillespie wrote the lyrics, and Colts recorded
