Paris Blues followed by New Breed Jazz Jam

Tue June 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Paris Blues: starring Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Joanne Woodward & Diahann Carroll with a special appearance by Louis Armstrong. Soundtrack by Duke Ellington.
Jazz trombonist/composer Paul Newman and jazz saxophonist Sidney Poitier living and working in Paris. Newman’s character is loving the creativity of Paris and the character of Poitier is far from the racial strife of the states.
Sidney Poitier and Diahann Carroll had a real-life romance, but were married with children to other people, so this was a difficult film for both of them.

Directed by Martin Ritt. A very important director of his time. He worked with Paul Newman on several films including Hud & Hombre. He had also with Poitier on Edge of the City, a movie dealing with tough racial themes.
Filmography includes The Front, starring Woody Allen as a front for blacklisted screen writers during the 1950s red scare. Norma Rae, starring Sally Field as a union organizer. Sounder, starring Cecily Tyson and Paul Winfield. The oldest son of a family of black sharecroppers come of age in the depression era south.
