Manchester Craftsmen's Guild presents: We Knew What We Had: The Greatest Jazz Story Never Told

Join the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild for a screening of their documentary We Knew What We Had: The Greatest Jazz Story Never Told, followed by a Q&A session and recordings of MCG Jazz.  

WE KNEW WHAT WE HAD: THE GREATEST JAZZ STORY NEVER TOLD chronicles the unrecognized history of jazz in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The hour-long documentary features the talents of international jazz legends George Benson, Ahmad Jamal, Stanley Turrentine, Billy Eckstine, Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Billy Strayhorn and Mary Lou Williams-all Pittsburghers. Using archival footage and photos, it also sheds light on the social conditions and historical events that conspired to make Pittsburgh one of the world’s leading contributors to the legacy of jazz music.
