Gathering material from early in her career, 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), this is an essential document that will surely surprise and fascinate the many fans of the late great Dinah Washington. The video has been completed with a selection of soundies from Martha Davis, Ruth Brown, Dorothy Dandridge, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and other female vocalists form the Forties and Fifties.
