Jazz Festival Fringe: Jazz Film Night


Two new jazz films – one about Chapel Allerton born jazz trumpeter Richard Turner and the second based on the life of jazz singer/raconteur George Melly.

RICHARD TURNER. Richard was an extremely talented and generous young jazz trumpeter who was born and raised in Chapel Allerton. One of the great talents of his generation, Richard first attended Leeds College of Music and then the Royal Academy in London. He played with indie band Friendly Fires, Gary Husband’s Drive and his own band “Round Trip”. he also ran a venue in London – the Con Cellar jazz bar which was helping to elevate the London jazz scene to the world stage when he died suddenly in 2011 aged 27. This film, “A life in music” examines the great impact he made in such a short time on the British jazz scene. Written and Directed by Rob Cope.

GEORGE MELLY was a famous jazz singer, writer and art critic. He was a household name for decades, known as the Boogie Woogie Man and Good Time George, famous for his fast living and raving, as well as his fierce intellect and love of good art. He was also a dedicated Surrealist, who saw the world through Surrealist eyes. “The Certainty of Hazard” is a warm homage to one of Britain’s most eccentric, colourful and contradictory figures. It tells the story of his life, with little seen pictures and footage, plus new insights from his wife Diana, former girlfriends Elda Abramson and Louisa Buck, old friend and colleague Wally Fawkes, and his son Tom. Written and Directed by Chris Wade. Wisdom Twins Films 2018.
