BOLDEN, the captivating drama directed by Dan Pritzker, imagines the compelling, powerful and tragic journey of Buddy Bolden, the unsung American hero who invented Jazz.
With little biographical information known and no found recordings of his music, the film’s narrative composes fragmented memories of his past, against the political and social context in which his revolutionary music was conceived.
With an original soundtrack by Wynton Marsalis, Bolden sheds light on the tragic, tortured life of The King of New Orleans Jazz… Buddy Bolden. Reno Wilson and Yaya DaCosta are revelations and totally worth the watch!
Truly one who loves Jazz and history of music should experience this film.
