Some Like It Hot - a few girl bands..

Roly drew my attention to the first clip which led me to add a few swinging girl bands of a slightly later period. The Sweethearts of Rhythm have some great soloists.
I love the choreographed conducting of some of the leaders - shades of Issie Barrett with the VOTNJO.
Thelma White's All Girl Orchestra.

Ragtime Dave Kerr drew my attention to the Ingenious Girls. I'd never heard of them.
Surely, we must all love a nice cuddly banjo now. Q.E.D.
