Jutta Hipp / Feb 4, 1925 - Apr 7, 2003

Jutta Hipp was a pioneering female jazz pianist from Germany. After a rough time as a displaced person in the '40s in Germany, she toured around Europe in the '50s with Atilla Zoller and others before coming Stateside in '55. She made a few records before retiring from the scene. Today, she has a street named after her in her hometown.
