"SAYING IT WITH JAZZ, the importance of lyrics"

A one hour video featuring jazz vocalists Carmen McRae, Lorez Alexandria, Carol Sloane, Etta Jones, Madeline Eastman, and Rebecca Parris. With comments by Carl Jefferson, Bob Parlocha, Orrin Keepnews, Joe Williams, Shirley Horn, and Sonny Buxton. Narrated by Al Young.

"Of all the stars in the firmament, singers are the least understood. But when we hear gifted divas not only sing, but talk, clouds lift. Probing the intertwined questions of how and why singers communicate, director Joan Merrill gets to the essence of 'saying it with jazz.'" -- Chuck Berg, Jazz Times

"You get the feeling that none of these singers would be here if not for Carmen McRae, whose phrasing and interpretation were unparalleled" -
Robin Tolleson, Down Beat

"A moving glimpse of six women who combine musicianship with soul, tenderness with guts...a valuable document of the jazz voice."
-
-James Gavin, jazz writer

"a highly professional, enjoyable, informative contribution to the library of video jazz."
-- Grover Sales, jazz writer
