All That Jazz! Stories of Jazz On The Big Screen, From Our Exclusive Interview Archives

by Ana Maria Bahiana April 1, 2016

With two biopics of jazz icons hitting the screens – Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead, exploring Miles Davis’ life and music, and Robert Budreau’s Born To Be Blue, a re-imagining of critical moments in Chet Baker’s tumultuous career, with Ethan Hawke as the jazz legend- this seemed like an appropriate time to look back at how movies expressed this all-American music style. Check the gallery to see what filmmakers and stars  - Golden Globe nominees and winners, most of them -told us about jazzin’ up the screen.
