Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of SONNY ROLLINS: Saxophone Collossus tonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - Sonny Rollins was a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award-winner and has been called the greatest improviser in jazz. Celebrated filmmaker Robert Mugge (New Orleans Music in Exile, Gospel According to Al Green) captures the artist in performance and in repose, speaking candidly about his life, creative process, spirituality, and music. Filmed in New York City, Tokyo, and near his home in upstate New York, this acclaimed documentary features scenes from the Opus 40 Festival (“G-Man,” “Don’t Stop the Carnival”) and the world premiere of Rollins’ “Concerto for Tenor Saxophone and Orchestra” with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra. “Widely hailed upon its release as essential viewing,” JazzTimes magazine adds that this film is “not just for fans of jazz, but for anyone even remotely interested in the creative process.”
MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
