Read What Critics Are Saying

“The pic may prompt a rewrite of jazz history…”

Robert Koehler

“It’s a cultural travesty that the women of early jazz…have become a neglected footnote in music history, but Judy Chaikin’s well-researched, buoyantly entertaining documentary portrait could be the corrective.”

Aaron Hills

“By any measure Judy Chaikin’s loving documentary is a standout.”

Leonard Maltin

“Lively and entertaining … sheds long overdue light. Director Judy Chaikin…infuses this fine portrait with grace, nostalgia and a well-calibrated dose of social commentary.”

Gary Goldstein

“Everything a worthwhile documentary should be, and then some: engaging, informative, thorough and brimming with delightful characters.”
