Happy International Women’s Day! At the archive, we are incredibly lucky to have so many dedicated women who volunteer and work for us (such as Jenny pictured working on the digitisation of the Brian Foskett collection, with a picture of Nina Simone). We are also incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity earlier last year to put on an exhibition at the Barbican Centre (Women in Jazz), which highlighted the incredible contribution women have made throughout the history of jazz. Here’s to all those women throughout history who have been an inspiration to others, and contributed to the development of jazz as an art form.
