Profiling legendary jazz trumpeter Tiny Davis and her partner of over 40 years, drummer-pianist Ruby Lucas, Tiny and Ruby: Hell Divin' Women weaves together rare jazz recordings, live performances, vintage photographs, and narrative poetry by Cheryl Clarke. Tiny's contribution to jazz history is documented in an informal, intimate style in which the 78-year-old demonstrates that her chops and humor are both quite intact. Produced and directed by Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss. Produced in association with Channel 4 (UK).
