Posted on February 6, 2019February 7, 2019 by John SinclairRoots & Branches 33: Star Women “Star Women” is the theme for February’s four shows in the “21st-Century Phenoms” series from Don Paul and Maryse Déjean. Each show centers on a decade or two and a woman musician who was a creative, innovative star in her time. In the 1920s, our centering star and profile is Lil Hardin Armstrong, whose story crosses continents. Also played on our jukebox from the 1920q and ’30s are Ma Rainey, Mary Lou Williams, Andy Kirk’s 12 Clouds of Joy, Alice Coltrane, and Valaida Snow.
