Д.Д. Posted October 18, 2021 Report Share Posted October 18, 2021 7 minutes ago, David Ayers said: I wonder why the very idea of this thread arouses objections? Well, because this is not a distinctive factor that has any effect on the music - and, hopefully, on a possibility to develop a "career" as a musician (nowadays, at least). Because many female musicians would strongly object to being referred to as "female musicians". Because there is no "female jazz". I imagine if you ask Joëlle Léandre about plying female jazz you'd get smacked on your head with a double bass. To quote from Shayna Dulberger's interview that Clifford linked to above: "I don’t play because I am female and my music is not about being female".
