DATE
Mon, Apr 21, 2014
TIME
7:00pm - 8:00pm

In 1958, scores of musicians assembled to create what is now a world-famous, "class photograph" of America's jazz legends. This Academy Award-nominated documentary zooms in and out of the astonishing photograph, interweaving archival performance footage, remarkable never-before-seen home-movie footage of the photograph being taken, and rare interviews with jazz masters present that day such as Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, Art Farmer, Dizzy Gillespie and Art Blakey. Other interviewees include the photographer, Art Kane; and the neighborhood kids who snuck into the frame to be photographed alongside their musical heroes. (1994, 60 minutes)

MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, & co-presented monthly by Soul Sister, Charitable Film Network, & WWOZ FM. Free admission. Info: mail@charitablefilmnetwork.org
