Monterey Jazz Festival's Next Generation Women in Jazz Combo was created in 2019 to feature top high school women jazz players from across the United States. This small combo, directed by award-winning bassist, vocalist, and composer Katie Thiroux, are selected based on set criteria through video auditions. The group has performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Next Generation Jazz Festival, the Jazz Education Network Convention, California State University Monterey Bay, and at Berklee College of Music where they workshopped with Terri Lyne Carrington at the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice.
