Jazz It Up: BMCC Tribeca PAC Presents
Screening of Sing Me a Song of Jazz: New Discoveries
(Published: March 14, 2012)
Next month, we jazz it up with the continuation of our Scenes through the Cinema Lens series with the screening of Sing Me a Song of Jazz: New Discoveries on Tuesday, April 10 at 7:30PM. The film retrospective takes the audience on a musical journey into the past to celebrate some legendary jazz performers. The FREE film screening will be followed by an informal Q&A session.
Just in the last few years a treasure trove of video has appeared with great performances by jazz singers. Some of this footage takes us back to early cinema and old concerts, but much of it is recent. This program includes memorable footage of Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Jane Monheit, Sarah Vaughan, Tony Bennett, Joe Williams and Anita O'Day.
Scenes through the Cinema Lens is a film retrospective focusing on the performing arts including jazz, dance and musical theater. The program is curated by Krin Gabbard.
