The "Ladies" who created an art form and sang their way into legend ... a bygone era is recaptured in this filmed salute to the women who started it all ... whose turn of a phrase made musical history.
Priceless footage of the great American divas (complete songs, not just tantalyzing excerpts) Billie Holiday backed by the most extraordinary band ever formed - Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Benny Webster, Roy Eldridge, and Gerry Mulligan. The great Bessie Smith in her only film appearance... Dinah Washington from the stage of The Apollo Theatre... Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughan, Lena Horne, and others, singing their classics. For many of them, this was their only performance on camera... certainly some of their greatest performances! Performances thought to be lost to time!
