Short Films


The JAZZ PASSENGERS are a fantastical fusion of post-bop and musical comedy.  They first broke out on the New York City avant-garde scene with a hybrid of Charles Mingus-influenced original tunes complete with lyrics and/or entertaining stories. Early Jazz Passengers sets and recordings feature collaborations with Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, and Mavis Staples.

To support the 2017 release of a new record and to remind audiences of The Jazz Passengers history Douglas Sloan created this short film.
