'Tis Autumn: The Search for Jackie Paris
Where: Bryant Lake Bowl
What: Jazz88 Reel Jazz Film Series
A solid start to Kevin Barnes's new jazz film series. As promised, the evening begins with live music by the Preston Haining Quartet, all of whom are still in high school.
The weather is nasty, Lake Street is torn up, and parking is a challenge but people still show, the quartet plays well, Barnes introduces the film, and we enjoy beer, burritos, and Pad Thai while learning about the life and music of Jackie Paris.
My MinnPost preview was going to include a link to the trailer but server problems intervened. Watch it here and see the film if it ever comes your way.
