Album Notes
“With depth of feeling, crystalline enunciation, refined musical sensibility, and rich, inviting alto tones, Rose offers fresh, frequently exquisite, takes on the standards presented in Wild Women of Song.” - Jazz Critic Lee Hildebrand

With the dazzling array of tunes on her fifth album Wild Women of Song—all by women songwriters—the veteran San Francisco jazz and blues vocalist Pamela Rose makes a compelling case for the enduring contributions of women to America’s treasure trove of popular music. The new CD’s sly, affectionate subtitle, Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era, describes Rose’s musical mission in no uncertain terms.

Most impressive is Rose’s stylistic range. She’s the rare singer who’s as comfortable belting sassy golden age blues like Alberta Hunter’s “Down Hearted Blues”, swinging hard on Doris Fisher’s “That Ole Devil Called Love” or singing with a divine tenderness on Maria Grever’s “What a Diff’rence a Day Made.” Completing the package, Rose displays her considerable skills as a songwriter, contributing three beautifully crafted originals, one of which was penned with internationally renowned jazz guitarist Mimi Fox.

Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era is a captivating new CD that reports back on Rose’s musical explorations and captures her sumptuous alto in peak form. The new disc, her fifth, was produced and engineered by multi-Grammy Award winner Leslie Ann Jones. The Leslie Ann Jones touch is evident throughout Wild Women of Song. The sound is close and intimate, and each tune features a cast of players ideally suited for the mood intended. As the CD’s producer, she collaborated on every aspect of the project, from tracking down hard-to-find sheet music from Michael Feinstein and Peter Mintun to engaging some of the scene’s most capable players, such as the versatile Matt Catingub, trumpeter Mike Olmos, and Jon Evans (Tori Amos’s bassist).

Rose, the album’s executive producer, called on some of her favorite women musicians—drummer Allison Miller, Mimi Fox, bassist Ruth Davies, and pianist Tammy Hall.

The CD and website (www.wildwomenofsong.com) should prove historically significant to the preservation of these songwriters. But for the listener, "Wild Women of Song" delivers mainstream jazz and blues in an outstandingly produced package.

great compliation
Rose does a lot of great stuff but I think this is her best so far -- the arrangements are killer, and Tammy Hall is a knockout. My favorite track is probably My Silent Love but it's all good here!!


Original songwriters - real women and their stories...
Loved the CD! This is Pamela at her best: great voice, soulful and honest. The CD flows so nicely: well-known tunes with personal depth and emotions mixed with some less-known songs which surely can become new favorites, and some smart original compositions... but the best of all is that some "faceless", generic songs, known mostly by their various performers were turned into something very special and personal, songs created by real women. A great singer herself, Pamela Rose steps back and lets these original songwriters and their stories shine. The arrangements are all wonderful, especially Tammy Hall's piano. What a treat!

Incredible! And More
Every jazz fan with the slightest interest in vocal music needs this CD. History lesson? Yes, and more. Project created out of love and admiration? Yes, and again more. Great musicians with great arrangements coming together with a great vocalist? Yes, and still more. Wild Women of Song is truly a celebration of the music these women composers have given to us, and that includes Pamela Rose herself. The songs you already know are suddenly fresh and alive again. The ones you don't know will have you wondering where these gems were hidden. And the three original numbers, cool and contemporary, fit superbly with the others. But most of all, what really makes this CD special, is Pamela Rose's incredible vocal style: crisp and clear, sweet and saucy. What a talent!

Sheila Banning

You don't know enough about the women of jazz . . . .
This CD would be remarkable just for the history lesson it provides, but it offers so much more. From lush introspection to raucous swing, each song's arrangement is crafted to match the tone of the piece, elevating the vocals without competing. And as for those vocals, even longtime fans will be blown away by the new territory Pamela Rose covers, musically and emotionally. Wild Women is a bouquet to the composers it celebrates and a gift to us all. What a difference a CD made . . .
