In 1958 photographer Art Kane took a group portrait of 57 of NYC’s greatest jazz players gathered on the stoop of a Harlem brownstone. Jean Bach’s joyous documentary recreates that momentous day through interviews with the participants, making the 55-year-old photograph come alive. (60 minutes; NR)
