Joanne Brackeen Featured On WBGO for Women’s History Month

This Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 3pm, WBGO (88.3 FM), the largest jazz radio station in the U.S., will be featuring legendary jazz pianist, Joanne Brackeen, on their Saturday Afternoon Jazz program.

She became the first women to fill the distinguished piano chair with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. She proudly admits that Art called her his “adopted daughter.” Before she put together her own group, she also worked with Stan Getz, Freddie Hubbard, and Joe Henderson.

Have a listen to this memorable version of John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s Michelle, from Joanne’s Arkadia Records solo piano album, Popsicle Illusion. Find her other music in our website.
