Cold Spring Jazz Quartet Presents Shades of Jazz in Film Noir
For twenty years Cold Spring Jazz Quartet has been treating Maryland audiences to their signature blend of current, classic and cool jazz. This show accents the classics, as CSJQ presents a tasty menu of memorable tunes, most of them love songs, heard in the wonderful films noir of the 1940s and ‘50s. Join CSJQ as they explore the many shades of noir jazz, from bliss to blues, rhapsodies to red wagons.
The show includes standards such as “I’ll Remember April” (from Phantom Lady), “Stella by Starlight” (The Uninvited), “I Hear a Rhapsody” (Clash by Night), “Never Let Me Go” (The Scarlet Hour) and “One for My Baby” (Road House), as well as the title themes from movies such as Laura and TV shows like Mr. Broadway and Peter Gunn. Along with this evocative jazz, the performance features specially selected clips from the movies and introductions by CSJQ leader and film scholar Mark Osteen.
This unique multi-media event is sure to delight jazz aficionados, classic movie fans and anyone who has ever been in love.
