The organizers of the ever-popular Celebrate Brooklyn! present this annual festival, offering a packed week of films, dance workshops, discussion panels and live music performances. The event kicks off with free screenings of two jazz documentaries; Denzel Washington narrates a nuanced portait of John Coltrane in Chasing Trane, and Kasper Collin’s I Called Him Morgan remembers jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan while exploring his tumultuous relationship with his wife Helen. The extensive line-up of musicians, playing across a three-day concert marathon, includes Maceo Parker, The Sun Ra Arkestra, Terri Lyne Carrington and Regina Carter, set to perform her latest project, Simply Ella, in honor of Ella Fitzgerald.
