Charlie Parker Jazz Festival
THE GIRLS IN THE BAND tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 30’s to the present day. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continue today to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.
Following the screening, Director Judy Chaikin and drummer Kim Thompson will join in a discussion about women in jazz and share their take on woman’s historic roles both in front and behind the scenes in the jazz world.
