THUNDER SOUL by Craig Baldwin & Craig Green
Alumni from Houston’s storied Kashmere High School Stage Band return home after 35 years to play a tribute concert for their beloved bandleader who turned the struggling jazz band into a world-class funk powerhouse in the early 1970s. As his students prepare to pay tribute to the now 92-year old “Prof.” who changed their lives (some haven’t played their horns in decades), they dust off their instruments, determined to retake the stage to show Prof and the world that they’ve still got it. Despite backing from executive producer Jamie Foxx, rave reviews, a 2011 NAACP Image Award nomination for Best Documentary, and screenings at major film festivals around the world, Thunder Soul has not yet been shown in New Orleans. (83 minutes, 2010)
