Jazz on Film: The 1940s—From Swing to Bebop
The 1940s—the years in which the fate of the world hung in the balance of World War II—was the decade that the world of jazz transitioned from the big band era of Swing to the small group dynamism of bebop. Come see and hear the metamorphosis on film with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Tatum, Duke Ellington, Lester Young, Milt Jackson, Sarah Vaughan, Mary Lou Williams and others.
