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
I think I saw it on Netflix.

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.
