Welcome to the WAER

Jazz Challenge. The Jazz Challenge is a celebration of jazz as an American art form and is designed to get you thinking about your personal favorites, why you like what you like and the sound that you value.  It is not a mechanism designed to rank artist in a way that suggests one artist is better than another.  It is simply based on listener preference.  It is our hope that you will discover an artist that you previously paid little attention to and/or confirm why you love some of your favorites.  Here are 16 top female jazz vocalist chosen by our staff.  Make your selections and visit the following week for results and the next round. Happy discovery!
