Very much in the moment, this character study of jazz bassist John Brown reveals his inner thoughts and soulfulness as he makes a big band recording in Kernersville, North Carolina. Well-paced, with crisp sound editing, the film swings you inside the notes and rhythms of artists committed to this music tradition. Reflected in Brown and crew’s comments and most importantly their “playin” is a work ethic that takes care of business. This is what jazz poetry looks like.
Presented in partnership with Duke Arts.
