A Film about Kids and Music. Sant Andreu Jazz Band
Spain | 2012 | 101min | DCP | Documentary
‘Kids and Music’ is a project arising from a music class. The big band brings together children between 6 and 18 years old, around a classical jazz repertoire with lots of swing, which gained the public. This documentary is a journey led by the orchestra director, which immerses us in a unique teaching method as unique as the results it unveils. A story that will thrill us with these kids’ staging talent and touch us through all sort of sensations that only they are able to bring to life. On this journey they are joined by Jesse Davis, Terell Stafford and Wycliffe Gordon that feed the spirit of young talent careers as Elsa, that with only 6 years old plays trumpet like an angel.
