The trailer includes only 3 characters from the original short story. Rich Seclen plays Sonny's brother (narrator), and Yannick Forbes plays an old friend of Sonny's. Thank You Guys!

A Short Film by Hunter John Hill

Tremendous solo from 28 year old Bird, that up to now is not available to hear on the internet! (I was lucky as my old neighbour in London gifted me the whole box set !) Majestically crafted-as if it we written before hand. This is the second take of Tinys Tempo from the Savoy sessions 1948. Parkers incredible subscription to the beat, his way ahead of his time be-bop lines and incredible blues sense stand out. In the video each phrase of the first chorus has been analysed and ideas are offered on how to understand and practice the musical jewels Bird left us. A testimony to his genius is that all 3 takes that day are flawless.

Its been 30 years since I played this solo. And i still love it! Its not every day you get to play with Art Blakey, McCoy Tyner and Art Davis! This knockout blues improvisation of Sonny Stitt is a scorcher! The phrasing, language, lines, rhythm, subscription to the beat are all tremendous. The 16th notes are like a semi- automatic! Blistering! Blues language mixed with bop and beyond! The diminished solo is featured as well. The record this Blues comes from is called ‘A Jazz Message’ led by legendary drummer Art Blakey with McCoy Tyner on piano and Art Davis on Bass In this first video of 2 parts I wanted to show the solo played without music as I believe it is important first to learn solos by ear before notation and analysis- Just as an infant learns to speak from its parents-not a book reading! Jazz/ Music for me is a language!

This, along with "In Egypt Land", was Theatre VCU's first production to include an all African American cast. Originally a short story by James Baldwin, included in his anthology of fiction, "Going to Meet the Man," Dr. Kenneth Campbell (director) received personal permission from Mr. Baldwin to transform this story into a piece for the stage, before Mr. Baldwin died in the 80s. Years later, Dr. Campbell felt it was time. Theatre VCU

Do you drink from the cup of trembling? Do you sup those dregs of hopelessness? Welcome back B.O.S.S. listeners. We continue our journey into the work of James Baldwin by reading the story "Sonny's Blues," a narrative about addiction, artistic creation, communion, destruction, existential dread, music's universal power, poetic prose, pragmatism, siblings, suffering, the trap of home, race, redemption, and what we leave behind. Once again, David and Nick find themselves trying to convince Nathan of the "substance" of the narrative. Does Nathan have his come-to-Jesus moment? Or, does he drink from the very cup of trembling? Find yourself a copy of the story, read it, and join us!
