Speaking of women and music...for those who don't know, Lilith Fair returns this summer. {#Jump} Confirmed acts so far include Sarah McLachlan, Loretta Lynn, Indigo Girls, Beth Orton, Colbie Caillat, Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Heart, and a ton of other great acts. I'm really looking forward to seeing this, and can't wait to see which acts will be playing the shows around here. I've seen Sarah once in concert, and she is amazing, I think. Here's a link to the official site for it - http://www.lilithfair.com/ .

Perhaps as a singer/songwriter, she is equal to Dylan - but by the time Joni came down from the Great White North to sing her folk songs, Dylan had already been there, done that and moved on to pioneer folk-rock.  In addidtion, Joni's body of influencial music spans about four albums in my opinion (Clouds, Blue, Court and Spark and For the Roses).  Dylan, on the other hand, has a body of influencial music that easily exceeds twice that number of albums.  So, those things being said, is Joni Mitchell as important or iconic as Bob Dylan?  I don't think so, although I'm a big fan of hers.  I'm not even saying that I like Dylan better (OK, I do) - I'm just saying that I believe he is more important to the musical landscape than Joni was.

Aretha, on the other hand - I doubt there is any man that can compare to Aretha.  She really had no rival, male or female, in her wheelhouse.


J,

You're missing something here ~ most artists who were influenced by Joni would call you to listen and experience her work with Jaco Pastorius, Don Alias, Pat Methany, Michael Brecker and Lyle Mays. 

as in:  Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, Mingus and Shadows and Light. 

No, one compares to Dylan and I think it unfair to say that the musician to whom and artist should be compared is Dylan.

I feel pretty sure that the only reason there have not been as many female ground-breakers as males, in the professional music industry is because the industry has always been run by men. They're in it as a business and in the early days most producers and record company honchos were pretty much stuck with "Do I like it and do I think it'll sell" when it came to marketing/artist signing decisions. Since they, most likey, dismissed 90% of the female artists who tried to get records made because of not being able to relate to the work of those artists then it's easy to see where the dominance of male artists in the industry came from.

And Joni is easily in the same league as any of the artists in your boy's list.
 

I agree.  and thus men shaped and influenced music.

and, the truth is, I prefer the female vocal sound to the male..... EXspecially in the jazz genre.....

I don't agree with you in as far as female vs. male importance to musical landscape. I think those very women and more that you mentioned are equal to the male examples you stated and in general. However, I do for the most part prefer male voices over females in general.  This is just a personal preference of mine and no statement to overall gender contributions to musical history. Just my 2 cents.

I think that women tend to get somewhat overshadowed in the music industry because, historically, there are very few groundbreaking female artists compared to groundbreaking male artists. 

Don't misunderstand me.  I am a big fan of many, many female musicians/singers, both from yesteryear and today.  I think the musical universe would be boring and stagnant if not for some very important and influencial women like Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Patti Smith and Janis Joplin.  You could argue that those ladies (and a few more) are as important to the musical landscape as any man, but I would respectfully diasagree.  I personally feel that artists like Led Zep, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Bill Monroe, The Beatles, Miles Davis, The Rolling Stones and Robert Johnson have no equal female counterparts.  I could possibly include Aretha with those fellas, but that's about as far as I'm willing to concede.  And, I'm only talking about modern music.  If we go back to the classic masters, it becomes even more one-sided.

My point is that I believe men shaped many of the musical genres that we hold dear today and that the men many people (myself included) consider them to be the pioneers of popular and important music.  Is it because women weren't given the same opportunities in the business?  I guess it could be a factor, but using sexism as a scapegoat sounds like a bad argument to me.

A lot of women's careers get the pop send-up by the business, resulting in their careers being short and without much merit. The true (female) rockers have to fight through a lot of stereotyping before they are accepted by exces, other musicians and listeners.
