Joan Cartwright has toured five continents and 15 countries including the U.S.A., eight European countries, Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, Gambia, South Africa, China and Japan, with her swinging brand of jazz and blues.

She is a composer and her book, IN PURSUIT OF A MELODY contains 40 songs and lyrics to standard songs: "A Night in Tunisia" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Blue Bossa" by Kenny Dorham, "Tune Up" by Miles Davis and "Bessie's Blues" by John Coltrane.

Joan's book also contains two lectures that she's given to over 8,000 children and college students, in U.S., Switzerland, Sicily, China and Japan: AMAZING MUSICWOMEN IN JAZZ AND BLUES, SONGS FOR MY CHILDREN and SO, YOU WANT TO BE A SINGER? Her workshops are dynamic and educational, highlighting the pitfalls and benefits of the music business. She contends that, "Knowing music theory is a step in the right direction for any singer who truly wants to excel in the world of music!"

Joan's books have been acquired in Jamaica, W.I., many schools and libraries in Florida, and at York College and Langston Hughes Library in NYC, and libraries in Philadelphia, Texas and Louisiana. She visited 11 schools in 2010, and countless schools since 1997.

Her videos on divajc.blip.tv at William Dandy Middle School and at Tokyo International School show what she does with children as far as teaching them to scat and about women in jazz and blues

Diva JC names any ensemble of musicians she works with "Jazz Hotline" because the music swings and it's always HOT! Her most famous Blues are "Nobody's Husband", "OH, Baby!" and "Treat Me Right And You Don't Have To Marry Me".

Joan's composition SWEET RETURN was recorded on Atlantic Records by Freddie Hubbard and the Kool Jazz All-Stars of 1983.
