Summary
"This video offers a fascinating picture of the young Dinah Washington, at a time when she was mainly concentrating on jazzy, torrid R & B numbers shortly after she had been discovered by bandleader Lionel Hampton. Featuring different clips and appearances (some of them at Harlem's legendary Apollo Theatre!) The video has been completed with a selection of soundies from Martha Davis, Ruth Brown, Dorothy Dandridge, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and other female vocalists from the Forties and Fifties"--Container
