Dexter Gordon Stars as Dale Turner
As part of the Black Talkies on Parade film series, The Mayme Clayton Library and Museum will screen Round Midnight, which features a lead performance by legendary jazz saxophonist Dexter Gordon. Gordon portrays the fictional character Dale Turner, a tenor sax player who is slowly losing his battle with alcoholism and is hanging by a thread in 1950′s New York. In Paris he finds that the “Jim crow” racism of the American “color line” does not exist. His experiences re-ignite his passion for jazz music and life.
