The Jazz Baroness
A few weeks ago, the NPR program "Fresh Air," played an interview with the granddaughter of The Jazz Baroness, Pannonica
Rothschild, a woman who left Europe in search of Thelonious Monk. She was speaking of her documentary on the baroness that aired on the BBC-TV recently. I found a big page of material on the documentary and the woman in general. However, I have not seen the film. I tried to watch it on line, but the page would not work. If you have any thoughts or advise on this, please let me know. Here is the trailer to the film.
