Just Listen: Terry Pollard

Where have I been? How is it that I never knew about Terry Pollard? I’ve researched jazz women. Hell, I was on the board of directors (with a stint as president) of International Women in Jazz. Yet I remained clueless. I have Michael Bloom to thank for hipping me to her most high hipness. Terry Pollard was born in 1931 and started her professional career at the age of 16.
