Hypatia Creative Women’s Jazz Orchestra Featured in Boulevard Magazine

June 29, 2009

A few months ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Lorae Farrell and members of the Hypatia Creative Women’s Jazz Orchestra for a Boulevard Magazine profile.   That article is now out in the latest issue of  Boulevard and can be found  here (starting on page 108).

Part of my research included a telephone interview with Sherrie Maricle, leader of the New York-based DIVA Jazz Orchestra and an email interview with Vancouver Island’s own Ingrid Jensen, who was a member of DIVA when it was first created, but has since moved on, of course, to a successful solo career (also based in New York).  Both players have interesting views about all-female jazz groups, which you’ll find presented in the article, along with a little of the history of women in jazz.

Of course the article is mainly about Hypatia and also includes comments from Hugh Fraser and Monik Nordine as well as members of the group.
