Bigger Than A Martini

"If Anita O'Day didn't invent the role of the hip white chick, she certainly held the patent on it. All you have to do is watch Bert Stern's strange, almost hallucinatory 1958 documentary, "Jazz on a Summer's Day," to get a fairly good idea of O'Day's particular talents."

All this and more in the upcoming documentary, Anita O'Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer.
