Description
Krista sits down with Tyler Perry at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about his latest film, A Jazzman's Blues. Penned in 1995 when Perry was still struggling to break into the entertainment industry, A Jazzman's Blues is a sweeping tale of forbidden love that unspools forty years of secrets and lies soundtracked by juke joint blues in the deep South. Perry explains why he waited for so long to share this particular story with the world, breaks down his approach to casting and directing, and describes what it was like to work with an incredible group of musicians (including Terence Blanchard and Ruth B.) to bring the soundtrack to life. Perry also recounts how an Oprah segment he watched as a young man set him on the path to becoming a playwright, details his dream dinner party, and shares his newfound love of flying RC radio control airplanes with his son.
