"The Girls in the Band" screens at Sundance Cinemas Houston Feb 14-20

Attn: Houston! Judy Chaikin's "The Girls in the Band" runs February 14-20 at Sundance Cinemas Houston. This is an excellent film that documents the contribution of women to the art of jazz and includes plenty of interviews with now senior aged players, recalling the years before and during World War II, as well as younger contemporary players such as Anat Cohen, Sherrie Maricle, and Esperanza Spalding.

This is a great film for students of the craft, seasoned players and anybody with an interest in music and U.S. history. I've seen it twice and plan to see it again.
