The Montclair Women’s Big Band was founded in 1997 by veteran trumpeter and bandleader Ellen Seeling. With a vivid cast of some of the best jazzwomen in the San Francisco Bay Area, the MWBB combines an audacious sense of swing, tight ensemble work, and inspired solos. All About Jazz claims “the Montclair Women’s Big Band is one of the most formidable jazz ensembles on the West Coast….this is premium-grade big band jazz, rigorously blended for high mileage and maximum pleasure.”
