Jimmy McGary: The Best Jazz You Never HeardFebruary 1, 2019
Tenor saxophonist Jimmy McGary was a major presence in the Cincinnati music scene from the 1950s until his death in the early ’90s. With music rooted in Bebop with a progressive slant, the Jazz legend was a session player for King Records and released his first album as a bandleader — The First Time (with a quartet that included pianist Pat Kelly) — in 1979. McGary’s spirit and legacy have lived on well after his passing and well beyond Cincinnati, as evidenced in this new documentary film.
Highlights include Dan Ransohoff's "Cincinnati Algorithm," the Great Flood of 1937, the Taft political dynasty, a profile of Cincinnati Reds player Ival Goodman, the 1946 Cincinnati Bearcats football team, the last days and rebirth of the Albee Theater, controversy surrounding the Cincinnati bicentennial mascot "Cincinnatus," the walking metal men of Crosley Field fame, saving cash with Kash D. Amburgy, and a shopping trip through Swallen's.
James Brown was the jewel in the crown, but the throne of Cincinnati’s King Records always belonged to its irascible founder, Syd Nathan. This is the 70th anniversary of the legendary record label and studio. It closed shop nearly 40 years ago, in a now long-neglected warehouse on the neighborhood border of Evanston and Walnut Hills, but its impact still reverberates across today’s music.
