THE JAZZ LOFT ACCORDING TO W. EUGENE SMITH

2015 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Director Sara Fishko, Producers Jonathan J. Johnson and Calvin Skaggs

NYC PREMIERE Between 1957 and 1965, former LIFE Magazine photojournalist W. Eugene Smith obsessively photographed and taped the goings-on at the dilapidated Sixth Avenue loft he called home. As revealed in this astonishing WNYC-produced time capsule, what he captured is a treasure trove of NYC jazz of that period, including a three-week rehearsal by the legendary Thelonious Monk and jazz and classical music lessons given by the Juilliard-trained Hall Overton.
