AN EVENING FOR ALL JAZZ FANS

FRIDAY 22nd NOVEMBER

LINDEN HALL STUDIO

7pm – 9.30pm

 

JAZZ AMERICANS IN PARIS

Martin Goodsmith and Adam Sieff travelled to Paris to meet some of the American jazz musicians who currently live and work there. Their 11 minute film, Jazz Americans in Paris, is an introduction to how these expat American jazz musicians feel about living and playing jazz music in the ‘City of Lights’.

 

THE JAZZ AMBASSADORS

Introduced by the Director Hugo Berkley and Michael McEvoy Composer

This is arguably one of the most absorbing music documentaries created in recent years, irrespective of genre.  It describes how a group of African-American jazz musicians and their racially integrated bands crossed the globe during the Cold War to counter negative propaganda about racism in America.  All these artists are among the greatest names in jazz, including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Dave Brubeck.  The film’s original music score was by composer Michael J McEvoy.
