LIVING ON SOUL w/BEBOP
Sunday November 12, 7:00 pm
(2017, DCP, 96m) dir Jeff Broadway & Cory Bailey. Daptone Records is based out of a two-story building nicknamed “The House of Soul” in Bushwick, Brooklyn. For 15 years the musician-owned label has been putting out funk and hard-hitting soul one record at a time. The talented Daptone Records roster includes the incomparable Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, The Budos Band and Antibalas. In December 2014, the entire Daptone Family headlined Harlem’s famous Apollo Theater for a three-night, sold-out musical revue. This hybrid music documentary and concert film captures those shows. The performances burst across the screen in “Living On Soul,” giving audiences enviable access to Daptone Records now legendary run at the Apollo.
(2016, DCP, 7m) dir David Liu. Director David Liu will be present. World Premiere. One month before their legendary 1953 concert, jazz newcomer Charles Mingus confronts bandleaders Charlie “Bird” Parker and Bud Powell about their destructive lifestyles.
