Jazz Under the Stars

Soaring Songstresses

Tony Morrison wrote, “You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down,” which remains true. Hear about the emotional battles of giving up “the shit that weighs you down” at the Jazz Under the Stars: Songbirds of Jazz from the group Women's Voices and curator Patti Littlefield at the Albuquerque Museum this Saturday, July 8 from 7-10pm. Carla VB Terwilliger, Tracey Whitney, Barbara Bentree and MJ Wilde—some of the most talented jazz singers today—will be performing live with the support of Jim Ahrend on piano, Rob “Milo” Jaramillo on stand-up bass, drummer Mo Roberts, guitarist Dimi DiSanti, saxaphonist Lee Taylor, and reedist Arlen Asher. Hear about heartbreak and recovery and the soaring liberation of freedom from worries for only $15-$18. (Rini Grammer)

A celebration of women jazz singers with Barbara Bentree, Carla VB Terwilliger, Tracey Whitney and MJ Wilde.


This year Women’s Voices will present just five of the many talented Songbirds of Jazz in New Mexico: Barbara Bentree, Patti Littlefield (curator), Carla VB Terwilliger, Tracey Whitney and MJ Wilde. Ladies who sing not because they have an answer but because they have a song. 

Led by Musical Director, Jim Ahrend on piano, the amazing musicians who will lend their support with their own artistic voices are Rob “Milo” Jaramillo, stand-up bass; Mo Roberts, Drums; Dimi DiSanti, guitar, Lee Taylor, saxophone, and Arlen Asher, reeds. 

Together we will explore the myriad approaches and distinctive sounds that make up the incredibly diverse and exciting palette of this year's Songbirds of Jazz.

Music lifts us and settles joy upon our souls. A heartfelt song can thrill us and will almost always leave us with a smile. The magic of this music seems familiar as the Songbirds of Jazz share their songs of love and life in a glorious and many colored musical tapestry, often touched with tears of longing or laughter and moments that connect us all.
