Body & Soul: An American Bridge at Reginald F. Lewis Museum

Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 2:00 pm

USA | 2017
Director: Robert Philipson
English, 58 min.

Out of all the cross-cultural encounters that have resulted in the richness of American popular music, none has been so prominent or so fraught with fraternity and conflict as the relationships between African Americans and American Jews. This documentary teases out the strands of this cultural knot by focusing on the early performance history of the jazz standard, “Body and Soul,” one of the most recorded songs in the jazz repertoire.

BJFF hits the town! Located at Reginald F. Lewis Museum.
