Seasonal Special Happenings

Jazz Doc

When: Fri., May 30 2014

Jazz and cinema are two art forms that developed in tandem, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque celebrates this relationship in what's been dubbed the Double-C JazzFilmFest. This first-ever jazz film series is dedicated to the memory of WCPN's Jazz Tracks host Bobby Jackson. The series runs until June 21 and serves as a fitting prelude to the Tri-C JazzFest. At 9:20 tonight, you can see the 1959 film Jazz On A Summer's Day. Director Bert Stern's documentary is set at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, and it depicts performances by Louis Armstrong, Thelonius Monk, Chuck Berry and a score of others. The film also screens at 5 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $9. (Gonzalez)
