Music For Tomorrow

There’s nothing quite like shooting a film about an organization to get to know what drives and motivates all those involved. Yesterday I had the pleasure of helping out good friend and co-conspirator Danielle Bernstein on a Clear Films Productions shoot for Music for Tomorrow. We braved the summer heat and lugged gear all around town to document the Music for Tomorrow experience – from the musician’s perspective, the booker’s perspective, and key staff and organizational leaders.

In my mind, any day that ends with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, listening to the soul stirring music of Lauren Henderson, is a day well lived. As her band enchanted the crowd at (surprisingly good) O’Nieal’s on Grand, the vision and impact of Music for Tomorrow could be felt so strongly.

Their slogan, “Book a band, create a job”, showcases the simplicity and ease, but the message from all those we spoke with throughout the day was that of a drive that was much more deeply rooted. They believe in the transformative power of music broadly, jazz in particular. They want to celebrate the artists that create that music and make it as accessible to people as possible. A worthy and welcome cause.
