We Knew What We Had

The Greatest Jazz Story Never Told

 

Produced by Marty Ashby with writer and director Jeff Sewald

What do Errol Garner, Mary Lou Williams, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Lena Horne, Bill Eckstine, Stanley Turrentine, Billy Strayhorn, Ahmad Jamal, Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Ray Brown and George Benson have in common?

They’re all from Pittsburgh, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

A beautiful documentary on the remarkable music culture of a singular city.
