Film screening followed by remarks from Film Director Kay Ray. Praise for Lady Be Good:

"Lady Be Good is a mesmerizing film about female jazz instrumentalists! The photography, interviews and live footage of extremely talented, passionate and courageous players is spellbinding. These are women who open our ears, eyes and hearts as they blaze the trail for others to follow. It is an inspirational must see for anyone interested in the history of American music."
— Nancy Rumbel, GRAMMY award winning instrumentalist

"It would be incredible to have it as required learning in our schools. It would be so good for inner city kids to know what all the roots are, to grow musically and just for self-esteem as a person. I think it would be fantastic."
— Quincy Jones

"Lady Be Good was such a refreshing joy! It was so well done and so inspiring, I didn’t want it to end. It was very enlightening in so many ways, it's sinful that I wasn’t aware of many of these players. There wasn’t one female player in it that didn’t completely kick ass. Every school really needs this film as required viewing."
— Jennifer Batten, Guitarist

“Crosby, Hendrix & Cobain: Washington’s Musical Pioneers”

An ArtTalk with KUOW’s Amanda Wilde. 

Sunday, October 8, 10am

Get your tickets HERE
$10 Member, $12 General Admission

What do Bing, Jimi, and Kurt have in common? The music of artistic giants and Washington sons Bing Crosby, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain span generations. Their music belongs to us all. Washington state holds the unique position of being ‘on the edge of the world’ from both musical and geographic standpoints. This placement provided a rich breeding ground for three distinct and revolutionary artists who pushed artistic and technological limits to forge new musical and cultural territory. In this captivating presentation, musical journalist Amanda Wilde highlights unusual and universal themes and threads that weave three distinct artists with three groundbreaking musical eras: the 1930s, the 1960s and the 1990s. Along the way she will show how they have influenced the technology, business, and notoriety of Washington state.

 

Ernestine: There Will Never Be Another You & The Jackson Street Jazz Scene

Saturday, October 21, 7:30pm

Get your tickets HERE
$10 Member, $12 General Admission

Join us for a special cinematic look at American jazz and blues talent Ernestine Anderson, the consummate jazz vocalist whose voice Quincy Jones once described as "honey at dusk." A Seattle native and graduate of Garfield High School, Ernestine made an indelible mark on the jazz scene for three decades, a versatile talent who could move from gritty and driving to pure and soulful. She's well remembered for her recorded repertoire, including her signature song, "Never Make Your Move Too Soon," recorded with B.B. King. 

Kay Ray's short documentary, produced in 2002 for a Bumbershoot "Golden Umbrella" tribute, provides an intimate portrait of this evocative vocalist, whose career spanned the rough Jackson Street bars to Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Enriching this portrait of Seattle's important place in jazz history, the film is followed by a 40-minute lecture on Seattle's Jackson Street years, recalling a time when Pioneer Square was the nightly home of such jazz luminaries as Ernestine Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Quincy Jones and Ray Charles.  Jazz critic, author and historian Paul de Barros takes us there, with plenty of spectacular photos and stories.

Film screening followed by remarks from Film Director Kay Ray. Praise for Lady Be Good:

"Lady Be Good is a mesmerizing film about female jazz instrumentalists! The photography, interviews and live footage of extremely talented, passionate and courageous players is spellbinding. These are women who open our ears, eyes and hearts as they blaze the trail for others to follow. It is an inspirational must see for anyone interested in the history of American music."
— Nancy Rumbel, GRAMMY award winning instrumentalist

"It would be incredible to have it as required learning in our schools. It would be so good for inner city kids to know what all the roots are, to grow musically and just for self-esteem as a person. I think it would be fantastic."
— Quincy Jones

"Lady Be Good was such a refreshing joy! It was so well done and so inspiring, I didn’t want it to end. It was very enlightening in so many ways, it's sinful that I wasn’t aware of many of these players. There wasn’t one female player in it that didn’t completely kick ass. Every school really needs this film as required viewing."
— Jennifer Batten, Guitarist

Sunday, October 8, 10am

$10 Member, $12 General Admission

What do Bing, Jimi, and Kurt have in common? The music of artistic giants and Washington sons Bing Crosby, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain span generations. Their music belongs to us all. Washington state holds the unique position of being ‘on the edge of the world’ from both musical and geographic standpoints. This placement provided a rich breeding ground for three distinct and revolutionary artists who pushed artistic and technological limits to forge new musical and cultural territory. In this captivating presentation, musical journalist Amanda Wilde highlights unusual and universal themes and threads that weave three distinct artists with three groundbreaking musical eras: the 1930s, the 1960s and the 1990s. Along the way she will show how they have influenced the technology, business, and notoriety of Washington state.

 

Ernestine: There Will Never Be Another You & The Jackson Street Jazz Scene

Saturday, October 21, 7:30pm

Get your tickets HERE
$10 Member, $12 General Admission

Join us for a special cinematic look at American jazz and blues talent Ernestine Anderson, the consummate jazz vocalist whose voice Quincy Jones once described as "honey at dusk." A Seattle native and graduate of Garfield High School, Ernestine made an indelible mark on the jazz scene for three decades, a versatile talent who could move from gritty and driving to pure and soulful. She's well remembered for her recorded repertoire, including her signature song, "Never Make Your Move Too Soon," recorded with B.B. King. 

Kay Ray's short documentary, produced in 2002 for a Bumbershoot "Golden Umbrella" tribute, provides an intimate portrait of this evocative vocalist, whose career spanned the rough Jackson Street bars to Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Enriching this portrait of Seattle's important place in jazz history, the film is followed by a 40-minute lecture on Seattle's Jackson Street years, recalling a time when Pioneer Square was the nightly home of such jazz luminaries as Ernestine Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Quincy Jones and Ray Charles.  Jazz critic, author and historian Paul de Barros takes us there, with plenty of spectacular photos and stories.

Meet Emily Kaiser Thelin, Author of "Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert's Renegade Life"

Saturday, October 28 | 3:00 p.m.

Emily Kaiser Thelin is a writer and editor based in Berkeley, California, a former restaurant cook and a two-time James Beard finalist. Thelin first met Paula Wolfert, one of the world’s most influential food explorers and cookbook writers, while at Food & Wine magazine where she was the editor of Paula’s Master Cook column. Paula Wolfert is recognized for bringing Mediterranean cooking to America, and having defined a whole style of food writing — intense, immersive research, making no compromises in her recipes, and cooking things exactly as she saw and tasted them. Thelin was one of the first people Wolfert told about her Alzheimer's diagnosis, and this prompted her to write Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert's Renegade Life, a culinary biography which includes over fifty of Paula's most unforgettable dishes and explores the relationship between food, wellbeing and memory.

"Mr. Altman makes movies the way other men go on binges — with an abandon that sometimes gets the better of him — and which should be preserved and protected."
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)

McCabe Alternate

Musical score composed by Leonard Cohen!

This unorthodox dream western by Robert Altman may be the most radically beautiful film to come out of the New American Cinema. It stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie as two newcomers to the raw Pacific Northwest.

November 14:

3 Women (1977)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on 3 Women here.

This dreamlike masterpiece from Robert Altman careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s.

November 21:

Nashville (1975)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Nashville here.

Nashville 1

Critically acclaimed and often included on “best films” lists, Robert Altman’s biting satire is both brilliantly subtle and epic in scale.

November 28:

Secret Honor (1984)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Secret Honor here.

Secret Honor

Based on the original play by Donald Freed and Arnold M. Stone, and starring Philip Baker Hall in a tour de force solo performance, Robert Altman’s "Secret Honor" is a searing interrogation of the Nixon mystique and an audacious depiction of unchecked paranoia.

December 5:

The Player (1992)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on The Player here.

playerapr10

Robert Altman has not really been away. Yet his new Hollywood satire titled "The Player" is so entertaining, so flip and so genially irreverent that it seems to announce the return of the great gregarious film maker whose "Nashville" remains one of the classics of the 1970's.
