On this year’s festival theme of ‘Home is Where I Want to Be...’ Jazzwise Magazine

writer Selwyn Harris introduces and hosts a discussion on the Hollywood jazz life

feature Paris Blues. Set in Paris in the early 1960s, two American expatriate jazz

musicians played by Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier fall in love with a pair of

American tourists and must choose between returning home or remaining in a city

that offers each of them personal and artistic freedoms. While the story unfolds

against a backdrop of drugs and romance, Duke Ellington’s score, only his second

following Anatomy of a Murder, lights up the very best scenes.
Admission: £5/£2.50
