A little glimpse of “A Fair Maiden From Afar” from performance at Podium Grounds yesterday. Playing solo is like going completely naked in front of the audiences. However, it’s a good lesson for me to learn to be authentic in playing and truly accept who I am. Very often my ego pops up and trying to run the show: “play something impressive! Play faster! This line is shit! Damn. I play wrong notes. I am rushing” Still trying to slightly put this little wilful pet of mine back to its position, and go back to enjoy the moment of sharing music. Thank you Hanyo van Oosterom and staff from Podium Grounds for organising this event.

I love Chet Baker so much. Also...😍 I love learning his solos - singing or trumpet, and I am so influenced by his ideas. They are usually simple and thoughtful. And have you ever heard him sing "Everything Happens to Me?" Your heart just breaks. 💔⁠ 〰️⁠ I've been doing more aural transcriptions and I did a few Chet ones - You're Driving Me Crazy trumpet solo and But Not For Me scat solo. I love listening to the way he uses his mouth when he scats. It's exactly as he would play if his trumpet was over his lips, I think. There's control, but it's so loose.⁠ 〰️⁠ Whose music inspires you to practice more? 🎵⁠ ⁠ #laurenbush #musician #jazzsinger #jazzvocalist #vocalists #jazz #jazzmusic #singersofinstagram #singer #vocaljazz #musiciansofinstagram #jazzvocal #jazzlover #jazzmusician #musiclover #lifeofamusician #womeninjazz #livemusic #lovejazz #lovemusic #canadiansinger #trumpetplayer #trumpetplayer #scatsinger #improvising #transcribing #chetbaker #chetbakertribute #jazzroyalty #jazzphotos

Day 88 of #100daysofpractice Today I practiced my audition music on tenor and switched over to flute for a little bit when my chops got too tired for tenor. Here are 2 licks that I worked out to go over 2 bars of ii-Vs with tritone subs on the V chords. Lately shen I'm practicing soloing and I play something that I like, I've started recording what I play so that I can come back to it the next time I play and hopefully retain the ideas better. #womeninjazz #tenorsax #flute #doubling #jazz

Couldn’t forget to recognize the birthday (Aug. 6, 1930 ) of the one and only Abbey Lincoln, jazz vocalist, musician, actress, and civil rights activist. Thank you for such beautiful music and your efforts to brighten up this world. I’m grateful for the person that introduced me to your music. It was indeed divine.

‘Carla Collabs', episode 6: To celebrate National Women's Day, this time I have collaborated with violinist, composer and recording engineer, Luca Hart. Luca recently released an album during the initial 21-day lockdown in Cape Town entitled, "Symphony of Solidarity", please consider supporting this on bandcamp (check out @lucahart_music profile ). She produced this track ('La Cumparsita' arrangement ) herself and I had the joy of recording some tenor sax over her fresh arrangement of this famous tango, 'La Cumparsita'. It means "little street procession" and was composed in 1916 by Uruguayan musician Gerardo Matos Rodriguez. Violin, track production and audio mixed by Luca Hart.🎻 Tenor sax, video editing and audio syncing by Carla Stokes.🎷For more lockdown collaborations that I've had the pleasure of doing this pandemic season, check out: carlastokesmusic.com - More are always in progress! 😊 Please give our vid a like on YouTube and subscribe to my channel (link in bio ). Happy Women's Day to all the ladies out there! ❤️ #womensupportingwomen #womensday #southafrica #capetown #southafricanmusicians #musicians #tango #lacumparsita #violin #tenorsaxophone #saxplayer #femalemusician #womeninmusic #womeninjazz #thatdrop #beats

Ethel Ennis, Jazz Singer, passed away 2/17/2019 from a stroke at the age of 86. Ethel was known as the ‘First Lady of Jazz’, having performed with the greatest Jazz performers, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, the Miles Davis- John Coltrane Sextet and Wynton Marsalis. A Baltimore native, Ethel began playing piano as a young child in church, later leading to a solo career as a vocalist spanning seven decades, recording over 12 albums. Her last recording was in 2005 taken at a performance in her home state of Maryland. #ethelennis #jazz #theartistlivesproject #womeninjazz #jazzvocalist #jazzgreats #atlanticrecords #jubileerecords #booklookandlisten #baltimorelegend #firstladyofjazz

COLLABORATORS CORNER!!! Bruce James from @james .and.black Bruce James met @rmsadler when James and Black toured the UK last year and needed a mighty fine double bass player. After playing together, Richard was so impressed with the music that he didn’t hesitate to ask Bruce if he might want to collaborate on the "Requiem For the Faithful 2.0 - The Remixes" album. Bruce accepted and the rest is history! FIND OUT MORE HERE : www.jamesandblack.org Bruce James is a soul man. The roots of his music spring from the tradition of Southern Soul from Texas, New Orleans and Memphis, yet he is not a throwback. The foundation of James’ music is the voice and stories in his songs. James’ musical history picks up early as a child growing up in Houston, Texas. Before finding his place on the keyboard, Bruce started out in the brass and percussion sections of his school and church bands as well as teaching himself guitar and bass. He relocated to Austin, Texas with his band Tunji in 1995 and soon, this group was playing their mix of punchy soul and improvised funk 250 nights a year at clubs and music festivals from Seattle to New Orleans. Tunji shared stages with the likes of Jimmy Smith, @officialburningspear , Dr John and @jurassic5_official to name a few. After Tunji split, he formed the Soultet making three albums. He and Bella Black joined musical forces in Austin, Texas in 2011, forming James & Black. After relocating to Europe in the summer of 2012, they have laid a foundation in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Bulgaria, the UK, Slovakia and China playing close to 150 shows per year. . . . . . . . #altjazz #ISQ #ISQMUSIC #livemusic #jazzmusic #liveshow # #liveband #originalmusic #recordingjazz #albumcover #postjazz #artpop #shoegaze #womeninjazz #jazzsinger #jazzsingers #singersofinstagram #londonjazz #popjazz #jazzpop #avantpop #altpop #ireneserramusic

@keyofshejazz : It's an organization founded by @ohughart_music based in Philadelphia that supports and encourages more women to be in involved in Jazz. I was lucky to be a part of their 2020 virtual conference held this week. It was a global networking event where we got to listen to some soul-touching compositions by female composers, learnt about home-recording techniques, got insights on how to make our practice sessions productive, and were mermerized by the stories of some great female Jazz musicians who were either forgotten to be mentioned in the history or lost their well deserved individuality by being known for their association with male Jazz musicians instead of their own talent. The workshop not just started a conversation around how to improve more female and non-binary representation in the current times, but also put in the efforts to balance the male-dominated history that we study. Also hands down the most well organized online event I've ever attended! Stayed awake late for a whole week to attend this since it was on US time, but it was more than worth every minute of my time. Hats off to the organizers who are being such great change-makers by taking a much-needed approach. To all the KeyOfShe Jazz people in my list, it was so nice to connect with you ❤️ Go follow @keyofshejazz and never miss any conference or workshop that they conduct. Can't recommend them enough 🙏🏽 #keyofshejazzvirtual #keyofshejazz #keyofshejazzconference #keyofshe #jazzmusic #jazz #womeninjazz #jazzworkshop #virtualconference #covid19

Hey everybody, this is groundbreaking trombonist Helen Jones Woods, whom the world lost to Covid-19 last week. Please take a couple of minutes to read her obituary (link in my bio ) and let her story sink in. . If you know anything about the world of professional classical music, you’ll know how very fierce the competition is for symphony positions. The fact that Helen Jones Woods won a position with a professional orchestra - especially in the 1940s, before the adoption of blind audition practices, which were specifically introduced because qualified women were so rampantly denied orchestra positions because of their sex - speaks ABSOLUTE VOLUMES about her skill as a musician. It’s nothing short of a searing tragic disgrace that she was fired when “After her first performance with the Omaha Symphony, her father, who did not share her light complexion, picked her up, tipping off the orchestra that she was not white.” Just try to imagine how she must have felt, after the years of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice that it takes to reach the level of proficiency needed win a job like that, after everything she went through on the road with the famously- and persistently- poorly-treated International Sweethearts of Rhythm, despite years and years of persisting against so much adversity and discrimination, to land a position with a professional orchestra ONLY TO BE LET GO AFTER ONE PERFORMANCE BECAUSE OF THE COLOUR OF HER FATHER’S SKIN. . It’s no wonder she never played her horn again. I daresay the world is a much poorer place because of it. . Thank you, Helen, for everything you gave the world, from music to nursing to social work to your inspiring children. RIP queen 💙

Fun fact! The title for my imminent new album, The Girl in the Groove, comes from a line in the song "Use Your Head", which I wrote after a particularly testosterone-laden tour I was on a couple years back. My girl @clarafiddlehead totally understood the sentiment of the tune, and took to playing particularly ...inspired and appropriate... solos over it at my @guiltandco nights. Of course when it was time to record this song, I needed to feature her on it! And did she ever nail it 🔥🔥🔥!! You can hear for yourself over at my Bandcamp page - link in my bio - along with 3 other songs from the album, 2 of which I just dropped today. . Today, and all first-Fridays-of-the-month through the end of 2020, is Bandcamp Friday, so all money generated through Bandcamp will go directly to the artists. Which in my case means it'll all go towards finishing getting The Girl in the Groove out into the world for everyone to hear and enjoy! 💖. .
