The NYU Orphan Film Symposium is premiering the restoration of THE CRY OF JAZZ (1959), Friday, April 9, at 8:00pm, at the Visual Arts Theater, 333 W. 23rd St. (New York).
This e-mail notice came in today:
I have launched a new blog to celebrate recent attention to my half-century old film THE CRY OF JAZZ.
Apparently the younger generations consider this film a "classic." Here's the link: http://ggdaddybland.blogspot.com/
Oh, the blog's name, ggdaddybland, comes from the fact that some people call me the "Great-Grandaddy of Hip Hop" because of the confrontational qualities of both my music and this film.
