THE JAZZ LOFT ACCORDING TO W. EUGENE SMITH

THE JAZZ LOFT ACCORDING TO W. EUGENE SMITH

Showtimes

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.
