LADY BE GOOD: INSTRUMENTAL WOMEN IN JAZZ - Within/Earshot Jazz Festival
Film screening followed by remarks from Film Director Kay Ray. Praise for Lady Be Good:
"Lady Be Good is a mesmerizing film about female jazz instrumentalists! The photography, interviews and live footage of extremely talented, passionate and courageous players is spellbinding. These are women who open our ears, eyes and hearts as they blaze the trail for others to follow. It is an inspirational must see for anyone interested in the history of American music."
Nancy Rumbel, GRAMMY award winning instrumentalist
"It would be incredible to have it as required learning in our schools. It would be so good for inner city kids to know what all the roots are, to grow musically and just for self-esteem as a person. I think it would be fantastic."
"Lady Be Good was such a refreshing joy! It was so well done and so inspiring, I didnt want it to end. It was very enlightening in so many ways, it's sinful that I wasnt aware of many of these players. There wasnt one female player in it that didnt completely kick ass. Every school really needs this film as required viewing."
Jennifer Batten, Guitarist
