JazzStories Podcasts: Sweet Honey In The Rock
Miriam Makeba, Nina Simone and Odetta – Three jazz/blues icons and three powerful women who gave a passion for justice to the Grammy winning a-capella ensemble Sweet Honey In The Rock. Sweet Honey added a band to honor those great singers in two concerts at JALC last season. Next summer they’ll premiere their own composition with the National Symphony Orchestra. Steve Rathe talks with the ensemble that’s 39 years young and still going strong.
