Since the 1940s, photographer Herman Leonard has created the definitive
visual history of jazz, with classic images of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis,
Billie Holiday and hundreds of other music icons. However, when Hurricane
Katrina hit New Orleans, Leonard¹s studio, darkroom and part of his
photographic archive were badly damaged by eight feet of water. This
documentary by Leslie Woodhead follows the 82-year-old photographer on his
painful return home and his efforts to rebuild his life¹s work. With Wynton
Marsalis, Tony Bennett and others.
