The Girls in the Band
Followed by discussion in person with jazz vocalist Catherine Russell
In celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, the "We Always Swing" Jazz Series presents a free screening of the documentary The Girls in the Band about the untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists from the late 1930s to the present day. Vocalist Catherine Russell, (shown at left) who will be performing at Murry's on Sunday, April 13, will be here in person to lead a Q&A after the film.
"Everything a worthwhile documentary should be, and then some: engaging, informative, thorough and brimming with delightful characters." (Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times)
