Though the journey to equality isn't over, women in jazz have been steadily gaining attention in recent years. Just last weekend, Maria Schneider (with the SRJO), Dawn Clement, Tia Fuller, and Jane Bunnett and her all-female latin band Maqueque were the star attractions in Seattle.  With her new release SHEroes, pianist and composer Monika Herzig's all-female band adds another important milestone of great music from still-underappreciated ladies in jazz.
