Drawing heavily on the photography of Val Wilmer and the poetry of Langston Hughes and Ted Joans, John Jeremy’s rarely seen Jazz is Our Religion has been described as one of the very few total jazz movies ever made. Featuring narration by Joans, Rashied Ali and Dizzy Gillespie and music by Charlie Parker, Lol Coxhill and many of the greats, Jeremy’s film brilliantly captures the essence of a musical form spanning several generations.
