Lady Be Good: Instrumental Women in Jazz is a 80-minute documentary film that concentrates on the contributions of American female instrumentalists in jazz from the early 1920s to the 1970s and the development and extent of the all-women jazz groups. LADY BE GOOD captures the lost stories of female jazz musicians in provocatives and often humorous interviews with women musicians, big band leaders, jazz authors, and historians. Musician and composer Patrice Rushen guides us through these exciting histories with rare photos, previously unseen film and television footage, and scarce recordings. Join Peggy Gilbert, Marian McPartland, Carline Ray, Quincy Jones, Jane Sager, and many others in this important new narrative.
Doors open at 7pm. Film starts at 8pm. $10 suggested donation. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
