Film Screening: Play Your Own Thing:  A Story of Jazz in Europe 

Play Your Own Thing is a compelling film exploration of the emergence and evolution of European Jazz, filled with music and voices from its origins in US-influenced clubs after the Second World War, through its evolutions as artists searched for their “own voice.” (2006, 89 minutes). This film includes rarely seen archival footage featuring American jazz legends Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington during their European tours. Presented with the Center for European Studies and the Center for African American Studies.
