Spirit of Bebop Film

Checkerboard Films is providing free online viewing of the film
“Barry Harris: Spirit of Bebop” for the next 3 to 4 weeks.

This intimate portrait of modern jazz pianist, Barry Harris, becomes a
historic walk with some of the best-known jazz musicians of the 1950’s
and 60’s, as Harris reminisces about friends and influences such as
Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis.
Harris shares with us his heartfelt music, insights into his personal style
of playing, and his far-reaching love of teaching, which, in his 90th year,
he continues to do today. © 1999 (55 minutes)
