ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
San Francisco blues and jazz singer Pamela Rose is joined by her ensemble stage cast of extraordinary blues women on a new CD: BLUES IS A WOMAN – Original Cast Recording.

Rose collaborated with Grammy award winning producer and engineer Leslie Ann Jones to capture some of the funky, boisterous and bodacious songs featured in Pamela Rose’s latest touring theatrical concert, BLUES IS A WOMAN: Wild Women of Song.

Featured on the six track recording are band members of the BLUES IS A WOMAN ensemble, sharing lead vocal spots with Pamela Rose. (Tammy Hall (piano), Pat Wilder (guitar), Daria Johnson (drums), Kristen Strom (saxophone). Ruth Davies plays bass, and two of the six tracks feature blazing horn arrangements by Kristen Strom, with a section filled out by Angela Wellman (trombone) and Marina Garza (trumpet).

Beginning with the title track “Blues is a Woman” (written by Rose) each of the funky, soulful songs on this recording, featuring songs by Sippie Wallace, Memphis Minnie, Peggy Lee and Alberta Hunter, brings to light the powerful contributions women have made to America’s most enduring art form – the Blues.

Rose’s earlier work “Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era” which shines a light on the remarkable women songwriters of the Tin Pan Alley era, toured nationally for 6 years. Rose’s historical research was compiled into a book (available with CD) entitled “Wild Women of Song”.

"Blues is a Woman" is a live concert premiering in 2017. Through storytelling, concert and multimedia the audience is transported back to the early roots of the America’s most enduring art form and travel through the decades to celebrate the outspoken, audacious women of the Blues.

“An extravagantly entertaining and informative show.” –Andy Gilbert

“Blues Is A Woman” Rose's most recent work included in her Wild Women of Song project, giving voice to remarkable women in music.

Pamela Rose also has recorded six other works: “On the Jazzy Side of Blue”, “Every Time I’m With You”, “You Could Have it All”, “Just For a Thrill” and “Hammond Organ Party!”
