[iNSIDE] THE JAZZ NOTE Guest Artist Series: Jazz & Cinema: A 100-Year Romance Hosted by Ashley Kahn
Jazz in the world of film has a long, colorful, and varied history. They both came of age about 100 years ago, and they have found a way of working together ever since, whether jazz was the focus of a film, or it served as a plot element, or a jazz musician played a role in the film, or jazz was on the soundtrack. The results of this creative overlap—or collision, depending on your perspective—have ranged from the sublime and supreme, to the cornball and ridiculous. This discussion will be fun and informative, looking at examples of all the above and then digging deep into the story of one historic marriage of jazz and cinema: Miles Davis and the 1958 Louis Malle film Elevator to the Gallows (Ascenseur pour l’echafaud). Curated by Ted Chubb, trumpeter & JAZZ HOUSE Director of Cultural Programming.
Open to all jazz lovers and students. Click here to register for the January 13th session!
