Women In Jazz: FIVE PLAY featuring Sherrie Maricle
In celebration of Women’s History Month, the JAZZ ROOM welcomes renowned drummer and bandleader, Sherrie Maricle and FIVE PLAY. This quintet is comprised of members from the world-famous Jazz DIVA Orchestra rhythm section with two of its foremost soloists. This collective is rooted in the jazz tradition with a “creative vision to swing through the twenty-first century.”
Sherrie Maricle thrives on breaking stereotypes of “The Girls in Band.” From the drum set, Sherrie leads The DIVA Jazz Orchestra, her quintet FIVE PLAY, and co-leads the 3D Jazz Trio with passion and gusto. She and FIVE Play exude the excitement and force of historic big bands combined with an eye toward today’s progressive sounds of originality and verve. A published composer/arranger, dedicated educator, clinician, guest conductor, and soloist, she has appeared on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood and NHK Japan’s New York Jazz. The band also co-stars in the award-winning documentary The Girls in the Band.
Sherrie has performed at many of the world’s most acclaimed music venues, from Lincoln Center to the Hollywood Bowl and Jazz festivals around the world. Additionally, Sherrie and DIVA were featured at the 2017 NEA Jazz Masters’ Awards Ceremony, the soundtrack for the NBC-Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular, and on TCM’s televised broadcast of the 25th Anniversary of the Kennedy Center.
