This DVD uncovers the life and career of this "dark lady of the sonnets",
Mal Waldron and others.
Includes rare TV and movie clips, her four sequences of "New Orleans" (her unique appearance on a Hollywood movie, with Louis Armstrong), and the extremely rare fifteen-minute musical short presenting Count Basie and his Sextet, Billie Holiday and "Sugar Chile" Robinson: a virtual triptych of talent, for the first time complete.
