I’m Jazzy Danziger. “Real” name Jessica. I wrote a book a few years back. At least ten people read it, which I appreciated. I’m a creative director at 2e and an MM&M 2020 Woman to Watch.

Lorne Greene of Bonanza was my great-grandmother Ann's cousin. (I guess “Greenblatt” didn't sound very Hollywood.) Here he is entertaining my “Nana” on set. A Jewish cowboy!

Singing is my first and greatest love, and this little performance of Carousel selections with the Town & Country Symphony Orchestra was a life highlight.
I'll even sing in rollerskates.
Finally, an outfit I still wear:
