“It’s a fantastic film that really lays
bare a very powerful interaction of art and jazz”
This short-form documentary by RoundO Films follows the development and culmination of Looks of a Lot, a collaborative multimedia work by jazz pianist/composer/performer Jason Moran, commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 2014. Collaborators with Moran include the Bandwagon (featuring drummer Nasheet Waits and bassist Tarus Mateen), visual artist Theaster Gates, reedist Ken Vandermark, musician Katie Ernst, and the Kenwood Academy High School Jazz Band.
2014, DCP, 61 Minutes. Courtesy of Luhring Augustine and RoundO films.
The screening will be followed by a discussion between the film's Executive Producer Radiclani Clytus and the audience moderated by the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery's Director, Vera Grant.
This is our FINAL event as part of our installation, Art of Jazz: FORM/PERFORMANCE/NOTES, so please join us afterwards for our closing reception!
