    DescriptionIn August of 1958, in front of a Harlem brownstone, first-time photographer Art Kane assembled 57 of the greatest jazz stars of all time and snapped a picture that would live forever. Narrated by Quincy Jones, this "irresistible" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times), Academy Award-nominated documentary examines the fascinating lives of the musicians who showed up that day to make history. Through remarkable interviews with nearly 30 jazz greats (including Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins and Art Blakey), home movies shot by Milt and Mona Hinton, and rare, archival performance footage, A Great Day in Harlem tells the story behind a legendary photograph that is still alive and kicking - and jammin'!

    DescriptionThe indisputable founding father of "bebop," Dizzy Gillespie remains one of the most recognizable and popular figures in jazz history. During his heyday in the 1940s, Dizzy was one of the first American jazz musicians to incorporate the electrifying sound of Afro-Cuban rhythms into a big-band setting. Forty years later, the legendary jazz trumpeter was invited to Cuba, the wellspring of his inspiration, to headline the Fifth International Jazz Festival in Havana. The journey, as documented in this star-studded film, was a spiritual and triumphal homecoming for the musical genius. ... Read more

    DescriptionDizzy Gillespie was an undisputed musical genius.As a player his reputation was legendary.As a leader his ability to inspire musicians helped produce some of the most influential music of the century.

    Performing with Dizzy in this sublime celebration of jazz music are such stars as Slide Hampton (who wrote most of the arrangements), Arturo Sandoval, Paquito D'Rivera, Mario Rivera and the Afro-Cuban queen herself - Flora Purim.A selection of musicians whom in their own right create truly beautiful music, but combined together, with Dizzy at the helm (and a magical orchestra in support) take the artform to some very serious places. This film, recorded live at London¹s Royal Festival Hall, is a must for every music lover who recognizes Dizzy Gillespie¹s importance as a major figure in music of the last century. ... Read more

    DescriptionMonterey Jazz Festival - Place Miles first on the bill. He wants those "fresh ears." And how about the time Jon Hendricks stepped on stage still jotting down the composition he was to perform? "Aren't you ready" musical director John Lewis asked. "Never" Hendricks laughed. Yet the result was perfection in progress: the legendary debut of Evolution of the Blues. And what about Ella, Louis, Dizzy, Sarah, Dave, Monk, Clark Terry, even Lady Day? They're also part of the lore that one weekend every year makes Monterey synonymous with jazz. Hosted by contemporary favorites Joshua Redman and Patrice Rushen and featuring archival performance footage plus on-camera commentary from notables (including lifetime jazz buff Clint Eastwood), this compendium of the Monterey Jazz Festival sings, swings and syncopates with joy. Like eggs and bacon and romance and roses, some things just go together. Things like Monterey and jazz, going together now for 40 magical, musical years. Year: 1998 Director: William Harper - Starring: Joshua Redman, Patrice Rushen

    Amazon.comThis film, recorded in 1982 at Lincoln Center, captures legendary jazztrumpeter Dizzy Gillespie performing with his Dream Band, consisting of a widearray of jazz music's finest musicians, many of whom worked with Gillespieduring the evolutionary era of the early-'40s bebop period. It includes an all-star cast highlighted by pyrotechnic drum wizard Max Roach, Gillespie's protégé trumpeter Jon Faddis, and Modern Jazz Quartet cofounders John Lewis (piano)and Milt Jackson (vibraphone). The leader's crowd-pleasing persona,trademark puffy cheeks, and no-nonsense trumpet solos steal the show. Selectionsrange from Gillespie's Afro-Cubop favorites "Manteca," "Tin Tin Deo," and "ANight in Tunisia" with master percussionist Candido Camero, to the timelessbebop compositions "Groovin' High" (with baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan)and "Salt Peanuts (Vote Dizzy)." Along with rare archival footage of Gillespieand his greatest musical companion, alto saxophonist Charlie Parker, thiscollection accurately captures the artistry that made Dizzy Gillespie great.--Eugene Holley Jr. ...

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.comBrief but delightful turns by Bill Evans and Paul Desmond, two of jazz's most lyrical players, are the high points of Monterey Jazz Festival 1975, an hour-long collection of performances by a disparate group of jazz and blues musicians who appeared at the long-running northern California event that year. Alto saxophonist Desmond (with quartet) brings his inimitably breathy sound to "Emily," while Evans, described in voice-over as "the thinking man's jazz pianist," duets beautifully with bassist Eddie Gomez on Jerome Kern's "Up with the Lark" (Evans reappears later with fellow pianists John Lewis, Marian McPartland, and Patrice Rushen for a swingin' "Billie's Bounce"). Elsewhere the pickings are considerably slimmer. Tunes by blues singers Bobby "Blue" Bland and Etta James are inexplicably limited to about 90 seconds each (sure, the program is advertised as "highlights" from the festival, but this is ridiculous); even Dizzy Gillespie is victimized by a seemingly arbitrary edit (not such a bad thing, as Diz's '70s funk excursions weren't exactly his finest hour), as are David Clayton-Thomas and Blood, Sweat & Tears. Good (and complete) tunes by pianist Lewis and his sextet and flugelhorn player Chuck Mangione (then in his commercial ascendance, with "Feels So Good" about two years away) round out an essentially good show that could have been much, much better. --Sam Graham ...

    Editorial Review

    DescriptionThe music documentary Play Your Own Thing provides a comprehensive history of European Jazz. It explores the origins of the US-influenced Jazz clubs after the Second World War, the first steps independent of American jazz and the various changes of direction that have repeatedly occurred in European jazz in the search for that "own voice" that European jazz musicians have helped to form. Featuring the great masters of European jazz such as Chris Barber, Jan Garbarek, Juliette Gréco, Stefano Bollani and Till Brönner, to name but a few, the film provides a wealth of styles in Jazz. For his third documentary on jazz, film-maker Julian Benedikt travelled to a wide variety of European countries in search of an all-embracing documentation of European jazz music. His story telling is neither too sophisticated nor does he simply reproduce the known clichés, rather the movie engages its audience with very personal impressions of European jazz, past and present. Accompanied by rarely seen archival footage featuring such influencing American jazz legends as Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, this unique document offers a collection of sparkling musical gems from both sides of the Atlantic. A great music film! ... Read more
