GRIT AND WHIMSY VI: THE BEST OF RECENT BELGIAN CINEMA
Our four-night "Jazz on Film" opens with Diana Ross’ electrifying performance as Billie Holiday in LADY SINGS THE BLUES, showing how powerful the right combination of star and role can be. Jazz musician Corky Hale, who accompanied Billie Holiday in 1956, will join us to introduce the program.
The west coast premiere of a compilation of newly restored vintage shorts features Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Hoagy Carmichael and more! It's followed by the classic musical STORMY WEATHER, starring Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and Lena Horne.
Andy Garcia joins us with his vibrant 1993 concert film of bassist/composer Israel López, better known as Cachao, who helped introduce jazz improvisation to Cuba, giving birth to the mambo. It's paired with CALLE 54, in which acclaimed Spanish director Fernando Trueba brought Latin jazz greats from all over (Tito Puente, Chano Dominguez, Chucho Valdes, Gato Barbieri, Cachao and others) to a recording studio in New York for a musical summit meeting.
