Synopsis
The poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists, and their groundbreaking journeys from the late 30′s to the present day are recounted. These talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere in a field that seldom welcomed them, and paved the way for a new breed of women to take their rightful place in the world of jazz.
