Female stage presence at the piano
December 25, 2011 2:24 PM Subscribe
Help me find video clips of female jazz pianists with stage presence! I'm looking for moments where the camera captures the stage presence of jazz ladies at the piano, their entrance, how they carry themselves, their hands on the keys, their interaction with their band-members, their final bow, everything. Thank you.

Please point out to me the female jazz pianists with huge stage presence of the likes of Hazel Scott, Mary Lou Williams or Nina Simone. These can be contemporary musicians or women from the classical jazz period, or just visuals of the three ladies above. I want to see how they carry themselves and how they act at the piano, solo or as a bandleader in a jazz-like setting, mainly to gain ideas & inspiration. Thank you in advance (and Happy Holidays, folks!)
