To get us in the mood for the June 2017 Vancouver International Jazz Festival, film scholar Michael van den Bos has curated another eclectic collection of cinematic clips featuring some of the greatest names in jazz and swing as presented in the movies. It’s a Jazz at the Film-harmonic program that spotlights stylish songstresses, including Lena Horne and Anita O’Day; the lyrical Latin sounds of swaying sambas, rhythmic rumbas, mondo mambos and blissful bossa novas that runs the grooving gamut from Antonio Carlos Jobim to Xavier Cugat; and the burnin’ beat of the swing era’s original Whiplash drumming dynamos.

As a bonus musical treat to follow the film presentation, Vancouver vocalist Laura Crema will perform jazzy versions of classic movie songs in the theatre’s atrium, accompanied by Sharon Minemoto on keyboard, Jeff Gammon on bass, and Dave Robbins on drums.

Clip show at 6.30; Live music from 8:25pm

Presented with VIFF
