When the Pauly Cohen documentary was introduced on Kickstarter, I became a backer immediately, the project met its goal, and now it’s out. Woot!

The 45 minute film documents Pauly Cohen’s career. Cohen was a lead trumpeter in the big band era and played with many of the greats, like Earl Hines and Count Basie, and one of his mentors was Dizzy Gillespie, who he played with in the Earl Hines big band (Charlie Parker was in the band, too).

I’m just about to watch it, but wanted to post it here first. Hope you like it. Heck, I hope like it.

Way to go, Mr. Bret Primack! Thanks for this resource.
