Inside the Blue Note nightclub one night in 1959 Paris, an aged, ailing jazz man coaxes an eloquent wail from his tenor sax. Outside, a young Parisian too broke to buy a glass of wine strains to hear those notes. Soon they will form a friendship that sparks a burst of genius in director Bertrand Tavernier’s Round Midight, starring bebop legend Dexter Gordon.
NOTE: Director Bertrand Tavernier was originally scheduled for a post-screening Q&A, but has unfortunately had to cancel.
The film will be introduced by Dexter Gordon’s step-son and director of The Dexter Gordon Society, Woody Louis Armstrong Shaw III.
