As part of JazzWeek '11 festivities throughout Greater Boston, the Regent Theatre in Arlington is presenting a night of some of the best jazz films, hosted by Eric Jackson, jazz radio personality from WGBH, 89.7 FM.
The videos come from the collection of jazz historian Hal Miller, owner of the world’s largest collection of rare jazz film and video. Among Jackson’s picks will be clips of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan, Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, Wes Montgomery, Pharoah Sanders and Sonny Rollins. A reception with Jackson and Miller precedes the screening.
Tickets to the event are $8, of $16 for the films plus the reception. Either can be ordered online.
