Join us for the return of Jazz on Film: a night of jazz films under the stars at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard! On Thursday, September 1st, we continue our screenings of documentaries and feature films that celebrate jazz culture, music and film.
Jazz on Film is part of DiverseArts Culture Works’ ongoing mission of bringing traditional African American arts, music and programming to the East Austin Cultural Heritage District. This series serves a dual purpose: while providing the audience with an entertaining and engaging experience, the films also serve as a history lesson on the legacy of the American musical tradition of jazz. Jazz on Film continues on alternating weeks, beginning in August and going on through October.
This installment of the series begins with performance footage from the 1990s Clarksville Jazz Fest, followed by the award-winning film, Jazz on a Summer's Day.
Jazz on a Summer's Day (1960)
D: Aram Avakian and Bert Stern; with Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Mahalia Jackson, and Chuck Berry. (85 min)
