Jazz in the Rainforest
The Beast ran into our friend Mr. Bennie Maupin yesterday and he told us about a special screening this Sunday of his new documentary-in-the-making Jazz in the Rainforest. Directed by Paul Sabu Rogers, the film documents Maupin and his ensemble's trip to Manaus, Brazil as cultural ambassadors and features their performance at the 8th Annual Amazonas Jazz Festival. The film will be shown at 2pm tomorrow (Sunday, July 27) at the Pasadena Central Library's Donald R. Wright Auditorium. For tickets to this event, go here.
