NYC has been bustling the past week with the Tribeca Film Festival, and we had the opportunity to attend a viewing of the beautifully produced documentary, Keep on Keepin’ On. We had to hold back the tears as we witnessed the touching relationship of 23-year-old blind piano prodigy Justin Kauflin and his mentor, jazz legend Clark Terry, aged 89.
The love and passion both Justin, and especially Clark, have for music and the pride they have in sharing that with others leapt off the screen. This has inspired us to share with you a performance by one of our blind subjects – jazz singer Frank Senior!
This was recorded on December 8, 2013 at Saint Peter’s Church in NYC, and it happened to be the first time we actually met Frank. As you will see, and hear, Frank also has a great passion for music – and a lot of love to share. It appears that jazz is good for the heart and soul!
We hope that Keep On Keepin’ On has great success on the festival circuit and that it will come to a screen near you soon! It is not to be missed.
