WOMEN IN JAZZ-ADD LIB, an all-woman's jazz group will be featured for a month- long engagement in August at MUMS, a new jazz place near downtown Houston. Four members of the jazz sextet appear above with Astrid Sheil (second from left), program director at KUHF. Sheil worked with Cy Brinson (center), the group's vocalist, to get the group together. The musicians Lynda Corbin (1), Brandy Anthony (second from right), and Janice Chappelear (far right), recently appeared at the Second Annual Women's Jazz Festival in Kansas City and they kicked off the Alley Theatre's Jazz Festival last month. Singers Brinson and Marsha Frasier (not pictured) will be featured during ADD LIB's August performance at MUMS (2016 Main at West Gray). Frasier also plays keyboards for the group. Linda Corbin plays the trombone and is an accomplished flutist. Janice Chappelear plays saxophone, clarinet and flute, and Brandy Anthony keeps the band on beat with her syncopated rhythms on the bass guitar. Anthony also plays the jazz guitar and the steel guitar. Also in the group is drummer Lucy Flohr. "There is a new awakening of jazz in the city," says Sheil. ''ADD LIB got together to showcase Houston's top female jazz musicians. We hope the community will enjoy hearing them."

Lucia, an epic three-part film by Humberto Solas, will be shown at the Museum of Fine Arts, 1001 Bissonnet, on Friday, August 24 at 7:30 p. m. The film dramatizes three separate periods in the Cuban struggle for liberation in order to show the participation of Cuban women in that fight. Each of the episodes, which take place during the 1895 war of independence from Spain, the 1933 overthrow of the dictator Machado, and the social changes of the 1960's under Castro, evokes the spirit of its era and the historical progression, emphasizing the changing role of women. At the same time, each beautifully-filmed episode is an entertaining and engrossing story. Lucia is both a unique view of Cuban history and La tin-American culture and a dramatically engaging examination of women's world-wide struggle for social equality. Spanish, with English subtitles. 1972. 160 minutes. Black and white. Wouldn't 1979 be a great year to take one giant step forward for womankind and get rid of "the girl"? Your attorney says, "If I'm not here just leave it with thegirl.,, The purchasing agent says, "Drop off your bid with the girl." A manager says, "My girl will get back to your girl." What girl? Do they mean Miss Rose? Do they mean Ms. Torres? Do they mean Mrs. McCullough? Do they mean Joy Jackson? "The girl" is certainly a woman when she's out of her teens. Like you, she has a name. Use it.
