Sloane: A Jazz Singer chronicles the life and career of little-known jazz legend Carol Sloane, who, despite having toured and performed with some of the greatest names in 20th century American music, is still chasing artistic perfection at the ripe age of 82. Hers is a heart-wrenching, hopeful, and ultimately beautiful story of faithful adherence to one’s craft, in the face of myriad trials and tragedy that come her way. But it is also an homage to a uniquely American art form, and Carol’s unwillingness to see it die. Captured just prior to the 2020 pandemic, the film’s reminder of the social and cultural importance of live jazz, its venues, and the preservation of its history, proves especially timely.
