DAVID AXELROD IN PERSON!

Premiere! DAVID AXELROD LIVE AT THE ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL, 2007, 93 min. Dir. Dana Axelrod. "Axelrod speaks with the same musical vocabulary as Burt Bacharach and Ennio Morricone, his art is dreamt in deeper atmospheric shades and, significantly, pays far greater attention to the rhythm section." -- The LA Weekly David Axelrod is an LA native and a legend. His jazz, filled with taught strings and sparse often dissonant arrangements, has become the raw material of today’s hiphop. As a house producer at Capitol Records in the 1960’s, he produced many hits for Cannonball Adderley, Lou Rawls and David McCallum. As a solo artist, his William Blake-inspired trilogy "Songs of Innocence, Songs of Experience and Earth Rot" inspired many, from George Lucas to Allen Ginsberg to RZA. DJ Shadow and Lauryn Hill who have used his arrangements. Dr. Dre’s biggest hit of the late 1990’s "Next Episode" was sampled from his work. The Royal Festival Hall is one of Britain's most remarkable modernist architectural triumphs -- as such it was a perfect place for David Axelrod to play his debut concert in the UK and a once in a lifetime opportunity for the sold-out crowd. Most of his music, recorded studios in Los Angeles, had never been played live, and the orchestra rose to the occasion. Backstage, it had been for Axelrod "One hell of a show!" Discussion following with David Axelrod and filmmaker Dana Axelrod. Tribute set by JRocc of the World Famous Beatjunkies in the Courtyard will follow the screening.

Special Prices: General Admission: $15; Seniors & Students: 12; Cinematheque Members: $10.

Presented in association with Mochilla, ArtDontSleep & Dublab.
