Just a reminder that Black February will be screening at the Library of Congress in Washington on Friday, Jan. 24, at 7 pm.
Larry Appelbaum, curator of the Jazz film series at the LOC, tells the Washington City Paper he wanted to pay tribute to Butch near the anniversary of his passing.
“Morris was a brilliant cornettist and theorist who developed his own language and process to express his vision. He passed one year ago and I wanted to pay tribute and let people know there is something that now exists beyond just the recordings.”
The film will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Mary Pickford Theater on the third floor of the Library of Congress James Madison Building, 101 Independence Ave. SE. Doors open 30 minutes before screening. No tickets required. For information call (202) 707-5502.
