SHE’s GOT JAZZ is a new film about the music of four rising young jazz stars - all under 35 and all women – who are electrifying the music scene and changing the face of jazz in the 21st century. The film captures the excitement generated by these extraordinary young performers as they garner critical acclaim and bring jazz to an equally young audience, while excelling in an area of music that has been traditionally male-dominated.

Details

The film will feature stirring live performance footage captured at several of New York's top jazz clubs, as well as comments about the artists by music critics and established names in jazz. The four featured performers - Saxophonist Grace Kelly, trumpeter Bria Skonberg, and vocalists Veronica Swift and Brianna Thomas, will also share their personal journeys as young artists and their dedication to jazz.

SHE's GOT JAZZ is produced and directed by Jim Burns, who directed the PBS documentary Jimmy Van Heusen - Swingin’ With Frank & Bing, about the life and music of the four-time Oscar-winning songwriter. The film’s co-writer, Will Friedwald, is the author of nine books about jazz and popular music and is one of the nations’s leading authorities on the  Great American Jazz and Popular Songbook.
