New York Gens Up on Jazz; MUSIC: Swansea Woman Shares Her Knowledge of African American Style
Byline: LAURA EVANS
AS a female, white piano player from Wales, you would not necessarily expect Jen Wilson to have a passion for African American jazz.
But the music which has dominated her life for the last 20 years will hit one of its greatest moments next month when Wilson flies to New York to deliver a paper on African American Music in Wales at the request of her American peers.
It has taken Wilson years of individual study and research but she is finally getting merited recognition.
"I am quite pleased as it means my research work has been accepted and I am a part of an academic circle which recognises my work, " she said.
