Spring 2016 offers jazz fans some great choices for famous trumpet player movies. I reported earlier on the Miles Davis biopic, Miles Ahead, starring Don Cheadle which opens April 1st in limited theaters (NY/LA). I am invited to attend the advance screening earlier in New York City as an IndieGoGo contributor but I have a schedule conflict that night darn it all.
I was just informed by the 92nd Street Y that Ethan Hawke will be appearing there with his new film about Chet Baker, Born to Be Blue on March 17th. He will conduct an interview after the screening. How cool is that 😉
