Share this event:

Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra featuring Sheryl Bailey and the world premiere of the 2018 Composition Contest winner, "A Step To My Dream", by Tracy Yang as part of the Earshot Jazz Festival.

Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra has been showcasing many of the finest female jazz artists in the region for over 18 years.

Theres no description more apt for Sheryl Bailey than "A sizzling guitar goddess", coined by Elliot Simon of All About Jazz.

Adam Levy of Guitar Player Magazine calls Sheryl "One of the most compelling tones of her generation", and Frank Forte of Just Jazz Guitar ranks her "among the best bop guitar players with a fresh approach and something new."

Sheryl has groomed incredible chops and impeccable taste. Lee Metcalf, (The Villager) she can "go from zero to blazing in two beats", but she is continually praised for never sacrificing melody and lyricism for technique. "She balances superior technical skills with a strong lyrical sense and swinging touch."

Joe Taylor of Soundstage says "Bailey combines an astonishing command of the fingerboard with a seemingly endless flow of melodic invention."

To date, Sheryl has 9 CDs out under her name, and a live DVD, "The Sheryl Bailey 3 Live in NYC". In 2010 MCG Jazz released A New Promise, her tribute to Emily Remler, produced by Grammy-award winner, Marty Ashby, featuring Sheryl as the solo artist with Three Rivers Jazz Orchestra.

Sheryl is a Professor at Berklee College of Music, and at the Collective in New York. She has been an Artist in Residence at countless other programs, including NYU, Bates College, the Stanford Jazz Workshop, Towson University, the LA Music Academy and GIT.

Sheryl has earned "Rising Star" status on Downbeats Critics Poll in 2013, 2014, and 2015.
