ABOUT PIANO PLAYERS RARELY EVER PLAY TOGETHER
Filmmaker Stevenson Palfi’s portrait of three great New Orleans pianists—Isidore “Tuts” Washington, Henry “Professor Longhair” Byrd, and Allen Toussaint—was filmed in 1982. The documentary examines how these men influenced one another’s music. The documentary takes viewers through the very personal and sacred New Orleans tradition of a jazz wake and funeral procession for Professor Longhair, which was taped at the encouragement of his widow, Alice. Also included is footage of a concert with Toussaint and Washington, who turned the event into a tribute to “Fess.” Released to critical acclaim more than 35 years ago, Piano Players Rarely Ever Play Together is considered by many to be one of the most important and exciting explorations of New Orleans’ musical tradition ever made. The film is the winner of more than twenty awards. Polly Waring, former wife of the late Stevenson Palfi, will be present for a Q&A following the screening. (1982 | Not rated | 1 hour, 16 minutes)
