"If music is God's gift to man, then Vince Giordano is one of the angels who delivers it. A terrific film about dedication, perseverance and staying true to one's art. (And that music!)" - Terence Winter Creator, Boardwalk Empire
What does it take to keep Jazz Age music going strong in the 21st century? Two words: Vince Giordano - a bandleader, musician, historian, collector, and NYC institution. For nearly 40 years, Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks have brought the joyful syncopation of the 1920s and ‘30s to life with their virtuosity, vintage musical instruments, and more than 60,000 period band arrangements.
This joyful documentary offers an intimate portrait of Vince, taking us behind the scenes as he shares his passion for hot jazz with a new generation of music and swing-dance fans.
