JAZZPROJECTOR

Thelonius Monk

Jazz Projector is a night of jazz related films hosted by Dr Nicolas Pillai (University of Warwick). Since most of these legendary musicians are dead it is perhaps the closest we can come to experiencing them live. The two short films selected for the next Jazz Projector event are: Jammin’ the Blues (1944) Dir. Gjon Mili, and Blues for Joan Miro (1966) Producer Norman Granz. The first conjures up classic images of Lester Young and others, while the second film is part of an uncompleted Ellington film project. The evening concludes with a 1965 Jazz 625 recording of the Thelonious Monk Quartet

PRES, DUKE & MONK

Two short films produced by Norman Granz – Jammin’ the Blues (1944) and Blues for Joan Miro (1966) – provide valuable glimpses of great musicians in modernist environments. The first conjures classic images of Lester Young, the second is part of an uncompleted Ellington film project. The evening concludes with a 1965 Jazz 625 recording of the Thelonious Monk Quartet.
