Working Musician Web Series

Working Musician is a 7-episode web series that shows the artistic highs and frustrating lows of a group of young jazz musicians in NYC. The primary subject is Alex LoRe, a 26-year old saxophonist/composer living in Harlem. His day jobs (real estate agent and music teacher) plus the daily tasks of practicing, composing, arranging, rehearsing/performing in multiple ensembles – for very little money – stretch his energy and spirit to the breaking point. Working Musician follows Alex for four months as he prepares for his first CD release. Live performances filmed at Shapeshifter Lab, Cornelia Street Café, Smalls Jazz Club, The Bar Next Door and The Bunker Studio.”
