"Women musical pioneers tell their powerful and personal stories filling a gap in an important chapter in American musical history. Musician and composer Patrice Rushen guides us through these exciting histories with rare photos, previously unseen and scarce recordings and film and television footage, including Lil Hardin Armstrong, Mary Lou Williams, Ada Leonard and Her All-Girl Orchestra, The International Sweethearts of Rhythm, Ina Rae Hutton and the Melodears and the Hormel Girls. Lady Be Good captures the lost stories of female jazz musicians in provocative and often humorous interviews with women musicians, bug band leaders, jazz, authors and historians. Join Peggy Gilbert, Marian McParland, Carline Ray, Quincy Jones, Jane Sager and many others in this important new narrative."--
