About this Event

Saxophonist Christopher Braig spent ten months filming, editing, recording and documenting the legacy of Cincinnati jazz legend Jimmy McGary (1926-1993). Shot on location in Cincinnati, Louisville, Boston and New York City this is Christopher's first attempt at working in Film.

The film borrows heavily from the ideas of the French New Wave Cinema and the work of American visual artist Alexander Calder. Christopher chose to use the tools of jazz improvisation during the entire production in an attempt to go beyond strict biography and reveal a deeper experience with Jimmy McGary and his music.

This one hour look at the jazz world of Cincinnati from 1968 to 1988 features interviews, rare recordings and the only known video of Jimmy McGary performing. Enjoy a heartfelt personal reflection on music and life of one of the 20th Century's greatest little known jazz artists.

​FEATURING: Wayne Yeager, Lynn Seaton, Pat Kelly, Steve Schmidt, Michael Skaggs, Sean McGary, Chuck Fertal, David Mathews, Rick VanMatre, Lou Lausche and Carol McGary

$10 drink minimum charged per person in party if the total for beverages purchased by the party does not meet the minimum.

Important Notice: If you do not check-in by the start of the show, your reserved seat will not be held.
