Cold Spring Jazz Quartet Presents Shades of Jazz in Film Noir
For twenty years Cold Spring Jazz Quartet has been treating Baltimore-Washington audiences to their signature blend of current, classic and cool jazz. This evening’s music accents the classics, as CSJQ presents an array of beautiful songs associated with the films noir of the 1940s and ‘50s. This show explores the many shades of noir jazz, from bliss to blues, from rhapsodies to red wagons. CSJQ will introduce several new numbers in this show, so even if you’ve seen earlier versions, there’ll be plenty to enjoy!
CSJQ plays standards such as “I’ll Remember April” (from Phantom Lady), “Stella by Starlight” (The Uninvited), “I Hear a Rhapsody” (Clash by Night), “Your Red Wagon” (They Live by Night), and “One for My Baby” (Road House), as well as the title themes from movies such as Laura, and the music from TV shows like Mr. Broadway and Peter Gunn. Along with this evocative jazz, the show features specially selected clips from the movies and introductions by CSJQ saxophonist and vocalist Mark Osteen—author of Nightmare Alley: Film Noir and the American Dream.
This unique multi-media event is sure to delight jazz aficionados, classic movie fans and anyone who has ever been in love.
