Rothschild by birth and a Baroness by marriage, beautiful, spirited Pannonica seemed to have it all, but in the early 1950s she heard a piece by the jazz legend Thelonious Monk and she abandoned her marriage to go and find him.
‘The Baroness’ traces Nica’s extraordinary, thrilling journey – from England’s stately homes to the battlefields of Africa, passing under the shadow of the Holocaust, and finally to the creative ferment of the New York jazz scene.
