Ornette's Waking Dream Of A Woman from THE MOON IS WAITING

"In And Out Of The Shadows" ( "Lelia" from FACES UNDER THE INFLUENCE) with the MICHELE BRANGWEN DANCE ENSEMBLE at The Jazz Loft

This documentary features the incredible musicians of NDR Bigband, also known as the Hamburg Radio Jazz Orchestra. Billed as a big band of soloists, the artists perform "A Conversation," a suite by Grammy-nominated composer and trumpeter Tim Hagans, who also conducts and solos. This film follows the band as they rehearse and perform this unique composition that reconfigures the traditional placement on stage of the musicians to facilitate wild and inspired musical conversation. Performers discuss their connection to the music and to each other. Filmed in October 2021 during pandemic, the work chronicles musicians coming together to make art during a time when it is needed most. Filmed & Edited by Michele Brangwen.
