Storyline

Fernando Trueba presents his love affair with Latin jazz, his camera following 13 giants into the studio. Trueba drapes walls with single colors - red for Jerry González and the Fort Apache band, white for Tito Puente; his camera is close to faces, instruments, hands, and feet; bands' colors contrast with walls or their leader's clothes. Chucho Valdés does a pyrotechnic solo then joins his aged father Bebo for a subdued duet. Puntilla Ríos takes us to Africa, Chano Domínguez to a marriage of jazz and Flamenco, and Eliane Elias, her shoe-less foot on the pedal, to gorgeous and muscular elegance. With Paquito, Cachao, Patato, Chico, Gato, and Michel Camilo, we travel Calle 54. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A treat
29 May 2001 | by (moonytown, usa) – See all my reviews

Calle 54 is a small gem for music lovers. Well structured and easy to follow, it allows the viewer to get lost in the beautiful and evocative sounds of Latin Jazz. Special and rare appearances by the greats of the genre make the film even more unique.
