A must see! Director Judy Chaikin's bebop documentary uncovers the startling history of female jazz musicians and all-woman big band music. From the 1940s to the swinging sounds of the contemporary DIVA Jazz Orchestra, the story of these incredibly talented pioneers roars with spirit and sound. Chaikin takes as a starting point Art Kane's famous 1958 Harlem portrait of jazz legends and weaves together a bracing combination of archival footage and interviews to explore a formerly undocumented history.
