Live Jazz & Movie Tonight For Free At Cafe Rozella
Tonight at 7pm, come to Cafe Rozella’s Friday FREE Film Night and not only see see “‘Round Midnight” for no cover, but also dig the sounds of Victor Puentes, who plays jazz for an hour starting at 7pm.
Usually the movie starts at 7pm, but tonight Rozella owner Ricardo is throwing live jazz into the mix, with the film starting at 8pm, so it should be a lively evening.
Did we mention that it’s FREE? As in…NO COVER?
“In ‘Round Midnight, real-life jazz legend Dexter Gordon brilliantly portrays the fictional tenor sax player Dale Turner, a musician slowly losing the battle with alcoholism, estranged from his family, and hanging on by a thread in the 1950’s New York jazz world. Dale gets an offer to play in Paris, where, like many other black American musicians at the time, he enjoys a respect for his humanity that is not based upon the color of his skin. A Parisian man who is obsessed with Turner’s music befriends him and attempts to save Turner from himself. Although for Dale the damage is already done, his poignant relationship with the man and his young daughter re-kindles his spirit and his music as the end draws near.”
