FunkJazz Kafe: Diary of a Decade (The Story of a Movement)
Earshot Jazz Film Festival

Oct 27 - Oct 28

(Jason Orr, USA 2012, Blu-ray, 134 min)

Seattle Premiere!

Saturday, Oct 27 at 05:00PM
Sunday, Oct 28 at 05:00PM

The story of a cultural legend as told by the innovators of an important (and in some cases overlooked) era in black culture. Spanning the late 1980s through to the early 2000s, this story goes deep into the fabric of soul music: its definitions, pioneers, offspring, movements and challenges to the "mainstream" industry, as well as the evolution of the FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival, a music and artistic renaissance movement born out of Atlanta's diverse musical and cultural arts heritage.

The film covers the decade when Atlanta's underground music scene became established on the world stage and a new generation of soul singers and musicians emerged. FunkJazz Kafé: Diary Of A Decade (The Story Of A Movement) also explores the question of why live soul bands are non-existent in the commercial music landscape of the 21st century, when there once was a plethora of soul and R&B performers (since the creation of recorded music). Appearances by Cornel West, Cee Lo, Dick Gregory, George Clinton, Roy Ayers, Erykah Badu, Lil' John Roberts, Chuck D, Andre 3000, and so many more.
