Jazz Nights: A Confidential Journey
Saturday, November 3 at 8 PM
Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.
The award-winning documentary JAZZ NIGHTS: A CONFIDENTIAL JOURNEY chronicles a group of L.A.’s top jazz musicians who, from 2011-2013, congregated in alternating configurations every Sunday night at an illegal, back-room hash bar hidden in the heart of Hollywood. This event poignantly echoed the Prohibition Era speakeasies of the 1920s, as well as the 1950s underground jazz clubs of Harlem, Greenwich Village and L.A’s own Leimert Park. The result was an all-out exploration — both personal and communal — of what it means to be an artist, to take risks, and to passionately follow one’s heart. By time the final note is played, JAZZ NIGHTS reveals itself to be far more than a document of musicians or a single event in time; it is a microcosm of the creative and intuitive human experience that has been with us since the dawn of mankind and continues to be a necessary pilgrimage, both personal and cultural, for so many the world over.
