I enjoyed being in this film.
Paul Anderson was a Jazz Studies student at the Univ. of Miami. He made the audition, and got to share the jazz club scene with Oliver Lake. It was a great learning experience for me because Oliver was insistent we keep the integrity, the vibe, and the standards high. I'm the alto sax player next to Mr. Lake. The actors in the audience were very responsive to what we were doing, even when the camera wasn't rolling. I had to stretch my playing concept to attempt to connect musically with Mr. Lake, and I'm glad the director gave us the time to really find something. I had no idea the final project was going to reach such a wide audience. I hope the message of the film continues to resonate and have impact today. Best regards Paul Anderson KJZZ , Phoenix
