About the Wild Women Project
    From the Wild Women of Song Liner Notes, by Lee Hildebrand...

    During a 2004 concert at the Steinway-Haus in Dūsseldorf, Germany, jazz and blues singer Pamela Rose performed eight songs in a row by women composers. Although she hadn't consciously planned the set that way, it wasn't entirely by happenstance, as the San Francisco vocalist had long held a keen interest in women songwriters, particularly those of the Tin Pan Alley and classic blues eras.

    Thunderous applause followed Rose's announcement that every tune she'd sung was composed by a woman. The same thing began happening back home in the San Francisco area. "I would say," she explains, "'the last six songs you heard were written by women.' The place would go crazy. I think people really are surprised to realize that the contributions of women to these songs that we love and revere are so strong, yet we don't know their names. It became a little cause to bring out these writers' names and to tell people a little bit about them."
