Event Details

Chicago Premiere!
Best Music Documentary, San Francisco Black Film Festival

Of all the cross-cultural encounters in American popular music, none has been as complex as that between African Americans and American Jews. Teasing out the strands of this musical knot, this film explores the jazz standard Body and Soul, composed by Johnny Green and performed by artists from Louis Armstrong to Amy Winehouse. Directed by Robert Philipson.

Kicking off the series in style, special guest Orbert Davis, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, will share both his musical knowledge and his trumpet playing to “discuss” Body and Soul. 

Sunday Cinema is sponsored by the Wilkow Family. It is the 2017 Solomon Goldman Program Series.
