LeRoy Downs’ Just Jazz Series Presents: Jazz Nights: A Confidential Journey film screening at Mr Musichead Gallery with an introduction by film director Hal Masonberg and Q&A with the director and the musicians. Featuring a live music performance from the Jon Dalton Trio.
Jazz Nights: A Confidential Journey chronicles a group of L.A.’s top jazz musicians who, from 2011-2013, congregated in alternating configurations every Sunday night at an illegal, members-only, back-room hash bar hidden in the heart of Hollywood. Once a week, these expert musicians formed a circle, a coterie of non-verbal, intuitive communication.
Via in-depth interviews, these cutting-edge musicians explore their lives, influences, backstories, upbringings, inspirations, and cultural affiliations. The result is an evocative tapestry of live music, thoughts and memories, and a snapshot of a moment in time amidst an ever-evolving American landscape.
Hal Masonberg’s sensual, understated documentary Jazz Nights: A Confidential Journey makes a case for jazz returning to the night. And not just the literal night but the night of alternative spaces of the L.A. underground and word-of-mouth, to music free from club and record label skulduggery and allowed to breath again.
A portion of proceeds from Mr Musichead go to the Musichead Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. We distribute funds to organizations around the country that support music-related programs for musicians and artists ~ of all ages. We believe in the power of helping others and connecting the world through a passion for the arts.
