With Mark Cantor
Featuring music by The Klipptones

Giants of Jazz on Film, the longest-running jazz-on-film series in the country, returns to celebrate the 100th anniversary of recorded jazz. World-renowned jazz film archivist Mark Cantor provides lively commentary for a uniquely curated show featuring a broad sampling of jazz classics – from early New Orleans jazz, swing, bebop and cool jazz to modal jazz, hard bop, West Coast and more. Jazz greats from Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington to Charlie Parker and John Coltrane grace the screen as we wish jazz the happiest of birthdays.
