Jammin' the Blues

Directed by Gjon Mili
United States, 1944
Musical, Short

Synopsis

This jam session starts with a blues played by Lester Young. Mili uses very sharp lights with subtility qnd also blacklit effects. The musicians become silhouettes, concentrated and relaxed at the same time, shrouded in mistery, appearing suddenly in close-up at the right time and tempo.
