It's a wrap!

Filming for The Beautiful City - New Orleans is complete and we are moving into post production.

Filming The Native Jazz Quartet in New York

We just wrapped filming Jason Marsalis (vibes), Christian Fabian (bass), Ed Littlefield (drums), and Reuel Lubag (piano) compete for the Jazz Ambassador Program.
