The Music Kept Them Alive…And Killed Them!

THEY DIED BEFORE 40 - new jazz film to make history

Official Selection – BIG APPLE FILM FESTIVAL 2016
Presented on Tuesday, November 1st at 6:45 pm at
Village East Theaters, 181-189 Second Avenue (12th Street), New York, NY

Which jazz musician’s funeral attracted 10,000 mourners and an 80-car funeral procession? (See photo attached)
Which African American musician was forced to play at the other end of the recording studio with white musicians?
     The website for the film has 40 Hot Points and Reviews (http://jazzdeaths.weebly.com).

More than two dozen gifted jazz artists died before reaching the age of 40. Most of them are relatively unknown, some even to jazz fans. Many of them made significant contributions to this art form. All of them had much more to give and, individually and collectively, would have made a greater impact on this music had they lived full lives. It is important that their contributions be made known, their music heard and that we show how and why they died.
 
    Many people may have heard of Bix Beiderbecke (who died at 28) and Charlie Parker (who died at 34). But others, such as Herschel Evans, who died before reaching 30, are very little known and their stories untold. For example, Jo Jones, drummer and an integral part of the Count Basie band for many years, has called Evans the greatest musician he ever played with. He said that Evans made everyone he played with better.
 
    Who was this giant, what made him an important creative artist, how and why did he die so young? These are questions that this film will answer concerning Evans and many more. In addition to Evans also featured will be Bunny Berigan, Chick Webb, Fats Waller, Charlie Christian, Jimmy Blanton, Clifford Brown and Chu Berry. About two dozen others’ ages and causes of death are included.
 
    Through their music, some archival film footage, photographs, reminiscences and expert discourse we learn more about these artists, develop an appreciation of their artistry and reveal how and why their careers were cut short.
 
    The film will expand our cultural heritage for this internationally renowned art form and also help us to understand the unique lifestyle that these artists led.

Jazz  Foundation of America

Monday Night Jam Series
Every Monday, the Jazz Foundation helps keep the spirit of the Music alive by hosting a jam session at the musicians' union in midtown Manhattan.

The event, produced and funded by the JFA, is free and open to the public. The environment offers seasoned veterans a place to meet, perform and network, and presents up-and-comers with the opportunity to find mentors and learn from the originals. It has rightly become a fixture in the jazz community, as it showcases the music and provides an informal gathering spot for artists and fans alike. On any given night, you could see four generations of musicians, from former members of the Count Basie band to teenage prodigies, all sharing the stage together. There's really nothing else like it in New York.
