Documentary


Vince Giordano is responsible for the period music in many acclaimed films. Who is the eccentric musician who, for 40 years, has kept the past alive with his 11-piece big band The Nighthawks, a collection of more than 60,000 band arrangements, and a house-full of vintage musical instruments?

And what does it take to make a life as a professional jazz musician in 21st Century New York? Giordano's dedication has kept this cultural phenomenon on life support through hard times, and introduced it to a new generation of hot jazz virtuosos who are laying claim to this joyful, energetic music.
