This full feature documentary film tells the untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists from the late ’30s to the present. It uncovers how these incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.
