  • The documentary film series ICONS AMONG US investigates the way that numerous iconic performers are dramatically reshaping contemporary jazz music. Four episodes of the program appear here. EPISODE 1: A QUIET REVOLUTION looks at the impact of jazz musicians on the voices of recent singers and the ongoing search of those vocalists for instruction; EPISODE 2: 12 NOTES IN REAL TIME rests on the notion that any given musician only has 12 notes from which to express his emotion - making real-time improvisation a daunting yet admirable art form; EPISODE 3: IN THE SPIRIT OF FAMILY explores the lifestyle and friendships belying the concept of a "collective" in jazz music - which, in turn, make collaborative creation during jams and recording sessions that much more exciting; and EPISODE 4: EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ventures to one of the focal points of jazz, New Orleans, Louisiana, where such legendary jazzers as Stanton Moore and Donald Harrison, Jr. help showcase the city's musical essence. Additional artists who appear in the program include Richard Bona, Charlie Hunter, Wynton Marsalis and many others.
