About the event

Hargrove chronicles the last year of trumpet legend Roy Hargrove’s life.  We follow Roy as he embarks on what would be his final European summer tour. Music icons including Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Questlove, Sonny Rollins, and Yasiin Bey pay tribute to Hargrove’s artistry, impact and legacy. Filmed in Paris, Sète, Vienne, Perugia, Sorrento, Marseille, Los Angeles, Dallas and New York, this film features stunning live performances by Roy in the last year of his life.

An epic love letter from director Eliane Henri, leading voices in the field of jazz reflect on the magic of Roy's music. The documentary expands to explore questions of race and exploitation in the industry as well as the multi-dimensional layers of Black music perspectives, led by some of the most revered voices in Black music today. A mystical journey through his last year on earth, this film is also a master class by Roy, cementing his role as mentor to the next generation of young musicians.

The movie will begin at 11:30 AM and a post-show discussion will immediately follow the screening moderated by Gordon Chamber.
