【影片梗概】

通过结合珍贵的档案剧照,对75位爵士音乐家的采访和从长达25小时的音乐会现场录音中精选的内容,本片以充满活力、引人入胜的手法纪录了当今那些最伟大的爵士音乐家。片中采用了爵士乐大师如Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, Ravi Coltrane, Medeski Martin和Wood,the  Bad Plus等人的采访及演出片段,通过捕捉音乐家们使用乐器的娴熟程度和自然流露出的爵士乐历史的渊博知识,本片从电视节目中截取了四个片段,展示了在一群与众不同的音乐家手中,即便是一小段即兴重复的爵士乐也有可能改头换面,焕然一新。新老两代音乐家的不但可以使用语言来对话,同时也可以采用音乐作为交流的方式。《我们身边的偶像》一片自然清新,惊喜不断,就象音乐本身一样,源源不断地为我们提供精神力量。

 

【导演介绍】(感谢翻译:小胡胡)

Peter J. Vogt是影片《我们身边的偶像》的三位导演之一,他1987开始从事电影行业,最初以设备管理员和电工的角色参与了许多独立电影、好莱坞电影和电视剧集的制作,如:《巧克力战争》The Chocolate War ,《铁甲学堂》 The Class of 1999,《路边先知》Roadside Prophets和《行医北大荒》 Northern Exposure。

他与大学好友Doug Pray联合制作了电影《Hype!》。《Hype!》是一部向西雅图车库音乐风潮致敬的影片,该片在圣丹斯(Sundance)首映,并获得西雅图电影节最佳纪录片奖。他同时也是该片的起始投资人,副摄像和第二摄制组的导演。

 

其导演作品有:Nuts & Bolts,讲述了西雅图的拾荒者比尔•威金盾的故事,他一反常态的工作方式与私人哲学对其周边迅速贵族化的人群同时是一种鼓舞也是一种刺激。Nuts & Bolts 赢得了西雅图电影节评审团特别奖并入围美国电影学会电影节的短片纪录片奖

Blue Moon People (PBS),介绍了蓝月酒馆,一个吸引了大批西雅图最优秀的艺术家、作家的地方,包括Mark Toby,Theodore Roethke,和Tom Robbins。

October是一部纪念911遇难者的影片,于纽约电影节首映后在美国、加拿大的20余个电影节进行过展映。

Icons Among Us: Jazz In The Present Tense,既是由四部分构成的系列影片的一部分,又是一个展示美国最重要却仍被误解的一种原生艺术形式的主题影片,它已于十余个电影节进行过展映并将在2010年做院线和DVD的发行。该片入围美国电影学会AFI PROJECT:20/20 项目,该项目在世界范围内通过推介电影人才推动文化交流。

High & Outside, 2009, 一个滑稽的左撇子棒球投手——比尔“太空人”的故事。该片08年在电影节放映后,目前正在寻求发行机会。

Paramount Duty, 一个关于华盛顿州公立学校资金长期不足的故事,刚刚完成,将于2010年在PBS以及华盛顿州有线电视公映。

这些影片一脉相承的是对小人物及丰富多彩的人性的关注。 其电影的目的正如亚里士多德几千年前对于艺术家所提出的要求“inform and delight”。

About the film

By combining rare archival stills, interviews with 75 jazz artists and live recordings culled from 25 hours of concerts, ICONS AMONG US is a dynamic and engaging document of many of the greatest jazz musicians of today. It contains interviews and performances from the likes of Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, Ravi Coltrane, Medeski Martin and Wood, the Bad Plus and many others. Capturing the spontaneity of performers who have an intimate knowledge of their instruments and a full knowledge of jazz history, the movie--created from four episodes of a cable and satellite TV series--shows how something like the same simple riff can become something completely different in the hands of different musicians. The dialogue between older and younger generations takes place with words, of course, but also with music. Like the music itself, ICONS AMONG US is fresh and constantly surprising, with a spirit and energy that innovates even as it recycles.

 

About the director

Peter J. Vogt has worked in film since 1987, starting out as a grip and electrician on many indie and Hollywood films, and several tv series including The Chocolate War, The Class of 1999, Roadside Prophets, and Northern Exposure.

 

He co-produced the film Hype! for my college buddy, Doug Pray. Hype! is celebration of the vaunted Seattle “Grunge Scene” which premiered at Sundance and won the Seattle Film festival’s award for best feature documentary. Doug Pray was also the initial investor, b-camera operator and second unit director for Hype!

 

Directorial credits include: Nuts&Bolts, the story of Bill Wiginton, a junk collector in Seattle, whose iconoclastic business style and personal philosophy have been a source of both inspiration and irritation in his rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. Nuts&Bolts won a Special Jury Prize at the Seattle Film Festival and was short listed for the AFI film festival’s award in the documentary short category.

Blue Moon People (PBS), profiles the Blue Moon Tavern, watering hole to many of Seattle’s greatest artists and writers, including Mark Toby, Theodore Roethke, and Tom Robbins.

October, an elegy for those lost on 9/11 premiered at the New York Film Festival and showed in at least 20 other film festivals around the US and Canada.

Icons Among Us: Jazz In The Present Tense, is both a four part series and a feature film showcasing one of America’s most vital, yet misunderstood native art forms. It has played over a dozen film festivals and will have theatrical, dvd, and on demand release in 2010. Icons was chosen to be part of the prestigious AFI PROJECT:20/20 program, which promotes cultural exchange by showcasing cinematic talent from around the world.

High & Outside, 2009, the story of baseball’s zaniest left handed pitcher, Bill “Spaceman” Lee played festivals in 2008 and is currently seeking distribution.

Paramount Duty, a story about the chronic underfunding of Washington State public schools, has just been released, and will show on PBS and cable stations in Washington State during 2010.

 

The thread that runs through all of these films is a heart for the underdog and an eye for the colorful personality. His films aim to do exactly what Aristotle asked artists to do thousands of years ago- “inform and delight”.
