Although the free jazz movement of the 1960s and ‘70s was much maligned in some jazz circles, its pioneers – brilliant talents like Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, and John Coltrane – are today acknowledged as central to the evolution of jazz as America’s most innovative art form. FIRE MUSIC showcases the architects of a movement whose radical brand of improvisation pushed harmonic and rhythmic boundaries and produced landmark albums like Coleman’s Free Jazz: A Collective Inspiration and Coltrane’s Ascension. A rich trove of archival footage conjures the 1960s jazz scene along with incisive reflections by critic Gary Giddins and a number of the movement’s key players.

Writer / Director Tom Surgal is known for directing a series of groundbreaking music videos for leading alternative bands like Sonic Youth, Pavement and The Blues Explosion. Tom was initially mentored in filmmaking by Brian De Palma and would go on to work in a wide range of film production jobs, including production design and casting. Tom is also a musician who has performed regularly with Nels Cline (Wilco), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Jim O'Rourke and Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges) and is co-leader of the improvisational ensemble White Out. He is also a curator who has programmed celebrated music series at various downtown New York venues, including an entire month of shows at John Zorn's hallowed performance space The Stone.

Tom is recognized as a leading authority on Avant-Garde Jazz and boasts one of the world's largest collections of Free Jazz recordings.

Musso & Franks, Hollywood’s Oldest Restaurant Re-Opens May 6th

Musso & Frank Grill

The oldest restaurant in Hollywood and a part of Hollywood history , Musso & Franks will re-open its doors for dinner on Thursday, May 6, 2021.

Like with other restaurants in Los Angeles and around the country, Musso & Frank closed its doors due to
COVID-19 and will reopen after a year.

Opened over 100 years ago on September 27, 1919 by Frank Toulet as Frank's Cafe located at 6669 Hollywood Boulevard.
Frank later went into business with Joseph Musso and renamed the restaurant Musso & Frank's Grill.

Eight years later, in 1927, the two sold the restaurant to Joseph Carissimi and John Mosso,
who moved the restaurant to 6667 Hollywood Boulevard, still its current location.

Musso & Franks was the place to be. It had the first pay phone installed in Hollywood. During the Golden Age of Hollywood,
it was a place for movie stars like Rudolph Valentino, Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogartand others were regulars.

The Screen Writers Guild was located near Musso and would become the place that authorsm who were recruited
to write Hollywood studios' next best script, would hang-out. Authors like Max Brand, T.S. Elliot, Aldous Huxley,
John O'Hara, Dorothy Parker and John Steinbeck.
