The cast includes Joshua Boone, Amirah Vann, Solea Pfeiffer, Austin Scott, Milauna Jemai Jackson, Brent Antonello, Brad Benedict, Kario Marcel, Lana Young and Ryan Eggold.
A sweeping tale of forbidden love, A JAZZMAN’S BLUES unspools forty years of secrets and lies soundtracked by juke joint blues in the deep South.
In 1987, a stack of letters is delivered to a state attorney general, possible evidence in the long-unsolved murder case of Bayou (Joshua Boone). Leap back to 1947 Georgia, where Bayou first meets Leanne (Solea Pfieffer). They fall in love, but Leanne’s relatives forbid the relationship, and the couple are torn apart. When they meet again years later, Bayou has become a song-and-dance sensation and Leanne has married another man — and is passing as white. Their desire for each other reignited, they conspire to escape together, but dangerous secrets from their past threaten to destroy their relationship permanently.
