Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

NEW YORK PREMIERE OF RAHSAAN ROLAND KIRK: THE CASE OF THE THREE SIDED DREAM SET FOR JUNE 11, 8:00 PM, AT IFC CENTER

NEW YORK, NY – Don’t miss the New York premiere of Rahsaan Roland Kirk: The Case of the Three Sided Dream, a documentary on the world-renowned multi- instrumentalist, at IFC Center, 323 Sixth Avenue at Third Street in Manhattan, on Wednesday, June 11, at 8:00 pm.

Directed by Adam Kahan, the film tells the story of Kirk, who went from a blind infant, to child prodigy, to adult visionary, political activist, and finally to paralyzed showman who toured and played music until the day he died (December 5, 1977).

Take part in a post-film discussion with Kahan, Dorthaan Kirk – Rahsaan’s widow and a founding member of WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM – and trombonist Steve Turre, Kirk’s long-time friend and band member.

The screening is part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival. Or more information, visit our website
