As men went off to combat in World War II, a group of Southern college women took to the bandstand. Meet the Darlinettes — hear their music and stories from their leader and their drummer.
The drummer is an NEA Jazz Master who’s played with everybody, including Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett. But for his new live album, DeJohnette called in some hometown pals.
The pianist brings nuance and impressive technique to a set that includes two of her original tunes, “Porridge” and “A Stone.”
Hear LaFarge mix old-time jazz, blues, ragtime and string-band music from the past century.
