A Great Day in Harlem

Join us for a matinee screening of the film A Great Day in Harlem as part of the Within/Earshot Jazz Festival presented by BIMA in partnership with the Seattle’s Earshot Jazz.

ABOUT A GREAT DAY IN HARLEM

Back in 1958 New York City clubs boasted nightly performances by the greatest players in jazz. Their music and their lives spanned four decades and linked styles and origins from across the country. This is the story of a moment from that era that brought dozens of these giants to a single frame.

A Great Day in Harlem is an hour-long documentary film that brings to life a remarkable moment in the history of jazz – a moment in which dozens of America’s jazz legends unexpectedly gathered together for a photograph that would become emblematic of the golden age of jazz. By illuminating this single, historic event, A GREAT DAY IN HARLEM is a window to an unprecedented era in music history which addresses broader issues of creativity and community in our own time.
