Jazzfilm: Cool Cats

Jazzfilm 2017 – Krona kino Jacob

COOL CATS
Danmark, 2016
Regi: Janus Køster-Rasmussen
1 t 15 min

The documentary Cool Cats tells the story of the jazz legend Dexter Gordon and Ben Webster’s stay in Copenhagen in the 1960s. In Copenhagen, American musicians found a free port from their home country’s racial discrimination and cultural impairment. At the same time, the two saxophonics began a musical avalanche, which made Copenhagen the capital of European jazz. Through skilled orchestrated archival material, the film shows the encounter between two jazz icons and Copenhagen.
