Jazz in Five Points - The Movie
Immerse yourself in the music, heritage, and history of Denver's Five Points neighborhood - the most celebrated African-American Jazz Age entertainment Mecca in the American West. Interviews with musicians, and neighborhood historians, rare audio recordings, home-movies, and archival film footage create an entertaining and compelling chronicle of music, family, segregation, faith and life in "The Points". Jumpin', jammin', jivin', and swingin'! The movie celebrates the heritage and the history of Denver's African-American community. Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and nearly all the other jazz greats of the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's played and shared their stories of life and living during the Jazz Age.
