WIJSF Compilation CDs

Since 2007, it has been our goal to produce the original music of female musicians. Now, we will release our first volume of 10 songs from 10 members. This first CD is mesmerizing. You will love it. You will buy one for your friends. The music is superb and deserves accollades. Thanks to steel pan player Bickley Rivera and vocalist Joan Cartwright, this CD hallmarks three years of successful recruiting of fine musicians to Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc.
