Calle 54

This movie is a tribute to Latin Jazz. It takes us on a musical journey that uncovers the heart and soul of an entire culture. From Miami to Havana, these heroes show their talent for storytelling, protest, sexuality and the celebration of life. Trueba captures 12 musical interludes shot in a recording studio in New York. Although done as a documentary the cameras move from musician to musician giving you a real feel for their talents and passion for playing as well as the feeling of being there live, while the musicians are playing. Some of the 12 artists featured are: the late Tito Puente (kettle drum and vibraphone) who some call the godfather of Latino music, Jerry Gonzales (Trumpet, Flugelhorn and Congas), Israel Lopez (Double Bass), Chano Dominguez (Piano), Chico O’Farrill (Leader and Conductor), Gato Barbieri (Tenor Sax) and many more. The film is 105 minutes in length and makes for great entertainment for lovers Latin music.
