Voyez-vous même:

Pour l'histoire: à 48h de l'échéance, à peine plus de la moitié des 50 000 USD étaient cumulés en dons.

Puis, le new-yorkais Michael Dorf - fondateur de la Knitting Factory -  a fait un don exceptionnel de 10 000 USD. Ce don a relancé la levée de fonds. Le pari est gagné.

Vous souvenez vous de Thomas CHAPIN?

Moi, oui. Nous oui. Son trio magique avec Mario Pavone et Michael Sarin!

 

Saxophoniste alto new-yorkais, musicien de l'Underground, homme libre, parti trop vite. Leucémie.

 

 

 

Voilà 15 ans qu'il nous a quitté. Sa belle-soeur et sa veuve, Stephanie et Teresa Castillo, se lancent dans un projet de film sur son oeuvre et sa vie. A l'américaine, elles organisent une levée de fonds pour financer ce projet mené par Stephanie castillo qui a réalisé près de dix documentaires. Il lui faut 50.000 dollars américains.

Avant le 30 mars, ce montant doit être atteint.... sinon plouf ... à l'eau.

Faites comme moi, participez au financement de ce projet en cliquant là: Kickstarter

THOMAS CHAPIN FILM PROJECT AT KICKSTARTER.COM--LAST FEW DAY TO GO! PLEASE DONATE NOW.



A remarkable, never-been-told story of Thomas Chapin, a jazz master who was gone too soon. A 1975 Andover graduate, Chapin's music lives on! We want to start filming this summer!

 In his short life he rose to the top ranks of contemporary jazz. In his 20's he was Lionel Hampton's music director, and during his 30's he was the top star and leading recording artist of New York's famed Knitting Factory in the 80s and 90s. He was gaining altitude, playing on the big world stages of jazz, reaching a global audience when he suddenly got sick while touring in Africa. He was diagnosed with leukemia and battled for one year. He died at age 40 in 1998. He was cited as a virtuoso, an iconoclast, a raucous player with an original sound. They called him an ambassador, a bridge between the uptown, jazz traditionalists and the downtown, avant gardists. There was a schism. He was one of a few who flowed freely, proficiently between both worlds. A documentary film is in the works.  Here is film page and the 18-minute trailer at the Kickstarter link:
