Fillius Jazz Archive Celebrates Jazz Month

The National Museum of American History has designated April as Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM). So in the spirit of JAM, Hamilton’s Fillius Jazz Archive is featuring one artist daily on the news site along with that individual’s archived audio interview. Today’s featured artist is Sheila Jordan.

Vocalist Sheila Jordan was born in Detroit on Nov. 18, 1928. Her uncompromising style and ability to adapt the language of bebop to voice has made her a favorite among jazz fans and a welcome bandmate with fellow artists. Jordan currently is enjoying an active schedule of performing and promoting the music she loves both here and abroad.

Jordan was interviewed in Middleburgh, N.Y., on May 11, 2002, by Monk Rowe, the Joe Williams Director of the Jazz Archive.
