Judy Chaikin interview-She Jazz: The 1920s-50s-Part One


This podcast episode features in the first half hour film director Judy Chaikin. Judy Chaikin's film Girls in The Band is a fantastic documentary film that offers a portrait of early jazzwomen in America leading up to the present.

Best known for her previous documentary films including 'Legacy of the Hollywood Blacklist', Chaikin's award winning film,' Girls in the Band' offers jazz music and World War II history with important women's history facts that have not been presented before in one film. The film also discusses the issues of American racial segregation and racism and the experiences and trauma that the women jazz musicians endured as a result of those racist policies.

The rare and incredible documentary film footage was collected by researchers all over America for over 5 years and it is wonderfully in depth with stories, history and music. I recommend that you watch it twice to catch the finer details. For more on this film visit www.thegirlsintheband.com

Following the interview and film trailer with Judy Chaikin, rarer music from women from the 1920's-50s is presented as 'She-Jazz:The 1920s-50s-Part One' by radio and podcast host and producer Kerilie McDowall. A good part of the playlist was obtained from record collectors who are also radio producers/hosts in Canada and features some nice gems.

Listen in to hear tracks starting from the 1920's followed by the 1940's International Sweethearts of Rhythm and Ina Ray Hutton and Phil Spitalny's Hour of Charm all female orchestras. Canadians also featured include ragtime's Vera Guilaroff and later from the west Vancouver's Eleanor Collins sings Ruth Lowe's, 'I'll Never Smile Again'. Then a trip back east to Ontario captures vocalist Phyllis Marshall in 1949. Listen to special Canadian anthology recordings from galarecords.ca including the anthology of talented Canadian female vocalists 'Canadian Divas-Swingin Easy' with Kay Foster, Norma Locke, Lorraine McAllister and more. Later in the show 1950's tracks from America's Mary Lou Williams and Clora Bryant are featured with later selections from Canadian vocalists Juliette and Georgia Dey.

Thanks to Nanaimo co-producers Tom Roden of the CHLY show What's Next and Gord Theedom of CHLY's show Music from the Past for your input, help, work and recordings. A big thanks also to Ontario producers/broadcasters David Lennick and Ted O'Reilly for help in obtaining recordings and for being so wonderful.
