Description by OLDIES.com:

This award-winning concert film portrays the life of the legendary singer/songwriter, known for her independent spirit and often naughty lyrics. Live from The Cookery in New York, she knocks out numbers ranging from the lascivious "Handy Man" to the classic "Darktown Strutters Ball," her voice full and rich, hands gesturing, winking at the audience...a consummate showwoman to the end.
