Video Pick Of The Week!!

A Great Day In Harlem.. This Oscar nominated documentary chronicles a single event amongst jazz musicians: the day in 1958 when many of the greatest gathered together for a photo shoot for Esquire magazine. A fair portion of the film is devoted to that which lead up to the photograph. The session itself is also detailed as jazz greats Count Basie, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Milt Hinton, and more rose at the ungodly hour of 10 am to take the picture in a Harlem brownstone apartment.
