Description by

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.

Product Description:

A live performance at the Cookery nightspot in New York captures Hunter at her best. She knocks out numbers such as "Two-Fisted Double-Jointed Rough & Ready Man," "Downhearted Blues," "Handy Man," and many more.
