First comes the beat then the bass then the birth of a brand new sound!
No one played music like Buddy Bolden.
The way he heard music changed the world forever.
“Bolden invites you to experience a world fueled by passion, greed and musical genius―in early 1900s New Orleans. Witness the compelling, powerful and tragic journey of Buddy Bolden (Gary Carr), the unsung American hero who invented Jazz. With little biographical information known and no found recordings of his music, the film’s narrative comprises of fragmented memories of his past, against the political and social context in which his revolutionary music was conceived.”
I didn’t expect much from Bolden, but this looks actually really good! Sign me up for this origin story of jazz!
There’s also a film poster, take a look below:
Where the music began.
The release date of the movie Bolden is set to May 3, 2019.
