The healthy links between jazz and cinema continue to be explored and in innovative ways. In Birmingham on Saturday 18 June Jazzlines and The Electric Cinema collaborate on the Otto Preminger classic from 1959, Anatomy Of A Murder.
James Stewart is the small-town lawyer, Lee Remick is the young woman stirring dangerous emotions and Ben Gazzara is her husband, arrested on a murder charge. The soundtrack is by Duke Ellington.
Following a screening of the film at The Electric, the Sean Gibbs Quartet will take to the stage and perform music from the film distilled from the orchestral soundtrack by Sean for his trumpet, the piano of David Ferris, the bass of Nick Jurd and the drums of Nathan England-Jones.
This is part of The Electric Cinema’s Time Machine strand, a year-long season of seminal films from across the globe from the 1920s to the present day. The Sean Gibbs Quartet’s appearance is programmed by Jazzlines.
- Anatomy Of A Murder can be seen at The Electric Cinema, Station Street, Birmingham B5 4DY on Saturday 18 June 2016, at 7.30pm, followed by Sean Gibbs Quartet concert at 10.30pm. Tickets from £12.50. More HERE.
