Marc has kind words for our film:
“Finding Carlton is at once illuminating and captivating. Through sterling direction and story-telling, the film manages to preserve Indian jazz culture while also informing even the wisest jazz fan about the music’s migration from American to Europe and to India. It’s a story that has escaped most American jazz listeners until now. Through this film, we learn the story of jazz’s development in India, brought to life by passionate, living Indian jazz musicians. But perhaps most remarkable is how all jazz musicians—no matter where they reside on the globe—share the same love and veneration for the music and its originators. In Finding Carlton, you see firsthand how jazz has come to be a transnational language.” —Marc Myers/JazzWax.com
