Calling In A Favour w/ Joseph ’Jazzbo’ Patel & Julian Brimmers (October 2021)

Calling In A Favour w/ Joseph ’Jazzbo’ Patel & Julian Brimmers (October 2021)

Welcome back to another episode of Calling in a Favour, a programme devoted to the bright minds & kind souls that make a difference in music culture. For the October episode, Julian is joined by Joseph Patel, also known far and wide under his pen name, Jazzbo.

Joseph is the producer of arguably (also, factually) the documentary of the year: the Sundance-winning, 99% on Rotten Tomatoes scoring, universally acclaimed Summer of Soul. Based on long-lost footage, the film portrays Harlem Cultural Festival 1969, a 6 weekends-long festival series in Harlem, NYC. The bill featured everyone from Stevie Wonder to Nina Simone, 5th Dimension to Sly & The Family Stone. The fact that not even certified music nerds like Joseph and Ahmir “Questlove Thompson”, who directed the film, had heard about this Black music milestone that happened mere weeks before Woodstock raises important questions about who gets to have their story preserved and collective myth building.
