“…but can she play? is the first feature-length documentary centered on the lives and music of women sax and brass players who are challenging gender biases and influencing the transformation of contemporary American jazz. The film spotlights such acclaimed talents as saxophonists Hailey Niswanger, Tia Fuller, Claire Daly, Lauren Sevian; trumpeters Linsey McDonald, Crystal J Torres, Christine Fawson; trombonists Robynn Amy, Aubrey Logan, Jennifer Wharton and Stephanie Baird — women who juggle their lives as wives, mothers and teachers while pushing themselves, and their art, on the road, on the stage and in the classroom.
One of the goals of this documentary is to encourage girls towards careers in jazz and to support organizations and programs that provide jazz and music programs for students in underprivileged schools where funding for music education is lacking or non-existent.
