Join sf|noir on Saturday April 30, 2016 as we continue our partnership with JCCSF to bring you the Giants of Jazz on Film series
The Great American Songbook forms the repertoire of much of jazz, and the “Big Five” are responsible for a great deal of that iconic music: George and Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern. And who knows? Perhaps we’ll throw in a little Harold Arlen or Johnny Mercer to round things out. Join us for a celebration of these influential songwriters with jazz performances from the likes of Artie Shaw, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Sarah Vaughan, Chet Baker, Bill Evans and others.
“Mark Cantor has one of the very best collections of jazz films in the world. Mark is an essential resource to anyone making a film about jazz.”
– Ken Burns
