Library of Congress Screening/Sensoria

14 04 2010

Well, despite fears of nuclear summit gridlock the April 12 screening as part of the Jazz in the Spring series  at the Library of Congress turned out to be a rousing success.  The theater was almost full, and many of the attendees were Raymond Scott aficionados, but there were also several newbies who reacted enthusiastically to the film.  Afterwards there was lively Q&A.  All in all a wonderful night for the film and for me personally.  Thanks again to Larry Applebaum and the LOC for hosting the event.  And for those of you in the area, there are two more films remaining in this year’s series: http://www.loc.gov/rr/perform/concert/0910-jazzfilm.html

And for those of you in the UK, a bit of a reminder, the film will be having its UK premiere at the Sensoria Festival of Music and Film in Sheffield on April 27th.  This is a really cool festival and I’m very excited to be a part of it–I will be there for the screening and discussion afterward with Martyn Ware.  http://tinyurl.com/y7ep8xo.  Update April 21–of course there’s some risk of my travel being canceled due to this pesky volcano situation in Iceland, but at the moment things are looking up for our Saturday departure….





Library of Congress Screening

16 02 2010

More good news! The film has been selected for screening at the Library of Congress’s Jazz Film Series in Washington DC. How cool is that?! The date is April 12th.   And…it’s free! (your tax dollars at work, so if you can get tickets, you won’t be cutting into what you need to send to the IRS on the 15th) . Reservations may be made by phone, beginning one week before the show. Call (202) 707-5677 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm).   Here’s a link to their website listing for the series, http://www.loc.gov/rr/perform/concert/0910-jazzfilm.html.  I’ll be there for a Q&A after the film, if you live in the DC area I hope you can make it!
