Live performances and candid behind-the-scenes interviews with masters of improvisation. The majestic Rocky Mountains tower over a bustling metropolis filled with steamy and romantic nightclubs where jazz flourishes on stage. Denver’s iconic and Grammy Award-winning musicians reveal the secrets of their success and longevity in the music business while warning the young lions to whom they pass the torch to stay relevant in a marketplace both treacherous and brutal. JazzTown is the most important music documentary to come out of Colorado in the last 50 years. Tragically, more than a few of the world class musicians featured in JazzTown have died during the making of this movie. Their stories, their passion and their wisdom live on to entertain and inspire future generations.
