Detroit Mi – Precious Night Events, Unlimited Sky Production & The Preservation of Jazz Presents recognizing Women’s History Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Keeping with such a commemorative tradition. The history of women in jazz in Detroit is rich and meaningful with so many textures and stories. We have put together a night to listen to some of those amazing stories through jazz songs, poetry and jazz music.

Vocalist Kymberli Wright, who is also the lead singer for the Grammy nominated all female jazz group “Straight Ahead” has fluidly gravitated between, soul, jazz and rock and now house music throughout her career without breaking a sweat.
Sky Covington and her collaborators are the best of the best in Detroit jazz and proud to be a part of The Preservation of Jazz and the Out of the Mouth of Jazz Music Series.
