Stern is currently recording new tracks for an as-yet-untitled CD, due out in 2009. More details will be announced soon.

Her recent 'Africa' CD has attracted the attention of a growing international audience. Over the summer, she opened for the legendary Salif Keita in New York City, was invited to perform at the United Nations days later, and subsequently celebrated the European release of her career-defining album, which was recorded over a two-year span at Keita's Bamako Studios in Mali.

Stern's stature as a 'Global Music Artist' has grown in the wake of 'Africa', and her live performances have reflected the dynamic shift, both in terms of instrumentation and personnel.

Since its U.S. release, critics have embraced 'Africa' as “a significant new chapter in a career marked by bold changes," and Stern was interviewed in the recent Annual Women’s Issue of Jazziz Magazine. 'Africa' has been praised as “one of the best CDs of the past year, in any genre."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
