Icons Among Us: Jazz in the Present Tense
Film followed by Q & A with major musical guest.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT "ICONS AMONG US". . .
"This film thrills me! ! Perhaps it is because so many of these musicians have appeared at the Jazz Bakery during our 17 year run and we've had the great good fortune to watch them mature into the consummate, ever-evolving artists we have with us today." -Ruth Price, Jazz Bakery
"The movie ("Icons Among Us") has been hailed as the most significant jazz documentary in recent decades for the very reason that, rather than focusing on the music's storied past (in the spirit of Ken Burns), it takes a look at jazz today and ponders its future." Brian McCoy, Oakland Examiner
"Icons includes extremely well-filmed footage of musicians performing and rehearsing in clubs and studios. These purely musical sequences are the major attraction of the program: they indicate what current jazz musicians are actually up to. Ben Ratliff, The New York Times
"Unequivocally, the best documentary on jazz that's ever been produced. John Kelman, All About Jazz
"Packed to the gills with great music that argues incontrovertibly that jazz is alive and well today." DVDTOWN.COM
"A celebration of the roots of the creative process," Mike Ragogna, Huffington Post
