BOLDEN movie, the wait is almost over!

Music| Written, Arranged & Performed by Wynton Marsalis, in theaters May 3rd

About | There are only a few historical facts about Buddy Bolden:
He was born on September 6, 1877.
At the age of 30, he was committed to an asylum where he died in 1931.
The only recording he made was never found.



He invented Jazz.


The birth of jazz was the birth of American popular culture from Louis Armstrong to Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Fugees and Dr. Dre., Bolden is where it all began.

BOLDEN reimagines the compelling, powerful and tragic journey of an unsung American
hero and the social context in which his revolutionary music was conceived. Weaving together fragmented memories of his past, BOLDEN invites you to experience a world fueled by passion, greed and musical genius, in early 1900s New Orleans.
