> Dear Friends--
> The ten-minutes movie I wrote and produced this past summer called "The
Roots of Sacramento Jazz" is now up on the internet for anyone to view. You
can use either Windows Media Player or Quicktime. You'll find it by just
clicking on the following address:
> This movie was presented on October 2, 2004 at the Crest Theater in
Sacramento as part of the "A Place Called Sacramento" film competition for
local producers. It was very well received by the 800 people in attendance.
> The film traces the evolution of the people in the Silver Dollar Jazz
Band--from their coming together at Sacramento High School in 1949; to being
the first band to play at Shakey's Pizza Parlor in 1955; their spreading out
in the community to form other bands and their grand reunion in 2001 at the
Sacramento Jazz Jubilee. The band members are Phil Howe, John Robinson, Don
Van Palta, Dutch Deutsch and myself.
> I hope you enjoy it.
