Jazz on a Summer's Day (1959) + Live: Joya Mooi

A lovely summer night with film and live music in the Max! The fully in 4K restored classic documentary concert film Jazz on a Summer's Day captures the sounds and performances of some of the major jazz artists at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. Unlike earlier jazz movies that had been filmed in smoky black and white, this is shot in vibrant color. While musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Anita O'Day and Mahalia Jackson perform, images of beaches, sailboats on water, dancing couples and the faces of joyful audience members are intercut into the proceedings. Before the film songstress Joya Mooi will do a short live performance.

Joya Mooi has many musical faces, all characterised by her background as a conservatory-trained musician. The Amsterdam singer has been strongly influenced by jazz, hiphop and R&B, genres she combines fluidly. With roots in Soweto, South African Joya gives insight into the experiences of a new generation from the African diaspora, with relationships, identity and belonging being reoccurring themes in her music. On her recent, well-received EP Blossom Carefully, she works with producers Sim Fane, Blazehoven and SIROJ spinning her stories around freedom, heritage and hope.
