Jazz Dreams II: A Film Screening
A Conversation with film maker Geoffrey Poister and musician Courtney Bryan

Jazz Dreams II is an 89-minute documentary that follows three young jazz musicians from New Orleans for fourteen years as they embark on difficult careers. The film features Jason Marsalis, the youngest member of the famed Marsalis family; Irvin Mayfield, a Grammy Award winning trumpet player/composer, and Courtney Bryan, a sensitive pianist attending the arts high school that graduated Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton,and Harry Connick Jr. We watch them grow from high school, through the death and destruction of Hurricane Katrina, to becoming parents and entrepreneurs.

It is a compelling story about committed young black Americans who are determined to keep America's most original art form alive and vibrant. The film includes appearances by Wynton Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, and Gordon Parks.
