The award-winning documentary JAZZ NIGHTS: A CONFIDENTIAL JOURNEY chronicles a group of L.A.’s top jazz musicians who, from 2011-2013, congregated in alternating configurations every Sunday night at an illegal, members-only, back-room hash bar hidden in the heart of Hollywood. The film explores the communal journey of musical and personal expression. It’s a revealing film about what it means to be a musical artist, a jazz artist, and to be a Los Angeles artist. The live music captured in JAZZ NIGHTS is emotionally exhilarating, meditative, sensual and hypnotic. Combined with intimate conversations exploring the personal journeys of each individual involved, their fears and desires, their struggles, triumphs and influences, the audience will be taken on a journey of their own, one that begs us to explore this human need to be understood, to voice our feelings, to share our vulnerabilities and strengths through artistic means. These events, these gatherings, happen daily in the warm glow of small backrooms across the globe, unobserved by the casual passerby and most certainly out of the purview of the machines of industry.

JAZZ NGHTS: A CONFIDENTIAL JOURNEY won the Audience Award at the 2017 Copenhagen Jazz Film Festival.
