Jazz Greats 

When: Sat., May 17 2014
Jazz and cinema are two art forms that developed in tandem, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque celebrates this relationship in what’s been dubbed the Double-C JazzFilmFest. This first-ever jazz film series is dedicated to the memory of WCPN’s Jazz Tracks host Bobby Jackson. The series runs until June 21 and serves as a fitting prelude to Tri-C JazzFest. Tonight’s iteration includes the new documentary A Great Day in Cleveland: Behind the Scenes, depicting 143 local jazz musicians and supporters creating in image inspired by Art Kane’s iconic 1958 photograph A Great Day in Harlem. This short is followed by the Oscar-nominated documentary A Great Day in Harlem, giving insight to the aforementioned famous photo. The screening begins tonight at 5:15 and the film also shows at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow. Bird, Clint Eastwood’s portrait of Charlie Parker starring Forest Whitaker, also screens tonight at 6:45. Tickets are $9. (Eric Gonzalez)
