One of my favourite music documentaries. This is absolutely fascinating and superbly made. Finding a copy is the only problem as it's only ever been released as a Region 1 DVD/Bluray but it is most definitely worth the effort.

Thank you for calling this to our attention. My favorite in that group of musician's has to be Carol Kaye. The first time I ever saw her was in a clip from a NAMM show which showed a bass playing grandma play circles around a cocky young upstart.
