In 1991, filmmaker Raymond De Felitta heard a singer by the name of Jackie Paris on a Los Angeles radio station. He found that Paris had died in 1977 with no further information. Years later in 2004, he discovered that Paris was alive and making a comeback at a New York City nightclub. This documentary film about the unheralded jazz singer is a brutally truthful exploration into what it is to live the life of an artist in its least glamorous aspects. With interviews by Dr. Billy Taylor, James Moody, Anne Marie Moss, Mark Murphy, George Wein, and more, this DVD boasts over 70 minutes of bonus features including extended interviews, filmmaker commentary, theatrical trailer, and concert footage.

Description:

In 1991, Raymond De Felitta was listening to a Jazz station and heard a singer by the name of Jackie Paris. Entranced by his style and technique, De Felitta began researching Paris. He learned Paris had opened for Lenny Bruce, that his voice was admired by among others, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat Cole and Sarah Vaughn. However, his research abruptly ended when he read in The Biographical Dictionary of American Music, that Paris had died in 1977. De Felitta thought that was the end of the story but one night in March of 2004, he was reading the New Yorker Magazine and saw an advertisement listing Paris' comeback at the Jazz Standard. Stunned, he wondered where had Paris been all these years, what had come of his life and why had a singer of this talent fallen into such obscurity. `Tis Autumn - The Search For Jackie Paris is not just a documentary about a great but unheralded jazz singer. It's a film that explores the very nature of what it is to live the life of an artist--any artist. Filmmaker Raymond De Felitta examines the life of cult favorite jazz singer Jackie Paris, but at the same time he might as well be exploring the life of any artist in any discipline, too many of whom share the same fate that Paris did the explosive debut followed by the years of ups and downs, the constant hope that success, though out of reach, is around the corner, the private tragedies that grow out of artistic frustration, and the final, self-inflicted wounds which all too often cause the once promising to descend into bitterness and chaos, a prelude to vanishing completely. Working with rare found footage and new interviews with jazz legends such as Billy Taylor, George Wein, Mark Murphy and Ruth Price, as well as the final concert footage and last interviews Jackie Paris ever gave -- De Felitta constructs an emotional mystery story which asks the question, who or what is to blame when a great talent goes from sensation to footnote during their life span?
