Jazz Fest: 20 Feet from Stardom

From June 2016

Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film 20 Feet from Stardom, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.

Jazz Fest: Good Night, and Good Luck.

From June 2017

Celebrating Dianne Reeves headlining the 2017 Jazz Festival, make some soul time with one of the most-awarded female jazz vocalists of our time.

Good Night, and Good Luck is a 2005 historical drama film directed by George Clooney and starring David Strathairn, George Clooney, Robert Downey, Jr., Patricia Clarkson and Jeff Daniels. The movie was written by Clooney and Grant Heslov (both of whom also have acting roles in the film) and portrays the conflict between veteran radio and television journalist Edward R. Murrow and U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin.

Jazz Fest: Jazz on a Summer's Day

From June 2015

The Newport Jazz Festival is one of the longest-running events of its kind in America, and along the way it’s played host to an incredible list of talented musicians. Jazz on a Summer’s Day, filmed during the festival’s 1958 performances, captures only a tiny handful of the many distinguished players who’ve passed through the Newport grounds, but it’s still plenty impressive: Thelonious Monk, Louis Armstrong, and Dinah Washington are just a few of the giants on this year’s bill.

Jazz Fest: Lady Sings the Blues

From June 2017

Diana Ross plays the magnificent, tragic song stylist Billie Holiday, who while writhing in a strait jacket in a prison cell, awaiting sentencing on drug charges, reflects on her turbulent life. Raped in her youth by a drunk (Adolph Caesar), then compelled to work as a domestic in a Harlem whorehouse, Holliday is encouraged to try for a singing career by the bordello's pianist (Richard Pryor). She rises as high as it is possible to go in the white-dominated show business world of the 1930s, but can't handle the pressure and turns to narcotics. The film takes several liberties with the 44-year existence of "Lady Day." Among the Billie Holiday standards performed by Ross are "My Man," "I Cried for You," "Lover Man," "Them There Eyes," and the title song.

Presented as part of the 2017 Wellington Jazz Festival.
