Documentary. Music that changed us

Photography and Jazz are my two passions, and this film is a labour of love since it’s about both - and about one of my heroes, the great jazz photographer Herman Leonard. Leonard lost thousands of his historic prints when Hurricane Katrina flooded his house in New Orleans where Jazz was born. Made over a year,the film follows the efforts of Leonard and the city to bring the music back to New Orleans.
