Review: This CD celebrates women getting the right to vote. It is mixwd with spoken quotes from different key players. The music is performed by pianist Allyson & her all-star sextet plus a host of guest musicians and vocalists. The album reimagines songs originally composed in the 19th and early 20th centuries to advance women’s voting rights. .
