The Giants of Jazz


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

L.A.-based jazz film archivist Mark Cantor returns to the Bay Area with two special programs of music on film. The first, titled Giants of Jazz, features some of the greatest names in jazz music. Almost all of the performances are from films not shared in past programs that Cantor has presented. Clips from the 1930s, 40s and 50s include such masters of swing as Art Tatum, Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, Roy Eldridge, Benny Goodman, Zoot Sims and others. Contemporary jazz will also be featured. Cantor will screen rare footage of John Coltrane in duet with Eric Dolphy, Charles Mingus, Lambert Hendricks and Ross, and perhaps Lee Morgan
