I'm delighted to announce the New York theatrical premiere of my new documentary, "Vince Giordano - There's a Future in the Past" on Friday, January 13th at The Cinema Village (12th St. bet. 5th and University). The film continues for a week though 1/19, with daily showings at 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. As New Yorkers, many of you already know Vince as the keeper of the flame for 1920s and 30s Hot Jazz, with his legendary big band, The Nighthawks - and that he's the go-to guy for Woody Allen, Martin Scorcese, Francis Ford Copolla and Todd Haynes when they need a jazz score for their films. The film tells the story of Vince's 40 year struggle to keep his dream alive and his band working. Here's the link from our distributor, First Run Features with more details:
My co-producer, Amber Edwards, Vince and I will be at the 7:00 and 9:00 shows opening weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) for Q&A. We hope to see you there!
