Lady Be Good highlights the contributions of female jazz instrumentalists in America from the 1920s through the 1960s. Musician Patrice Rushen guides us through the triumphs and struggles of musicians including Lil Hardin Armstrong, the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, and the Synconettes. Their stories are told through rare recordings, photos, and film footage, as well as interviews with Marian McPartland, Quincy Jones, and others.
