Storyline

Legendary jazz trumpeter, Jack Sheldon, is just 'trying to get good' - not only on his horn, but in his life as well. Wrestling with his demons of drugs, alcohol and unspeakable personal tragedy, Jack's musical journey through the decades reveals one artist's 'divine dissatisfaction' in the pursuit of excellence.
