WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's a Hardbop Life, a 2004 New York JVC Jazz Festival Special Event, is the debut of the historic play, which features for the first time, top jazz musicians as principal actors. The play stars former Duke Ellington Orchestra trombonist and Art Blakey protege, Gregory Charles Royal, with legendary saxophonist Billy Harper, Chris Albert, Clarence Seay and Eric Allen. Q is a top college athlete having problems with his game and rhythm, until his coach gives him an old LP of an "ancient" music called jazz to get him back on track. In a dream, Q. and his college cohorts become members of a jazz group called Hardbop, about to perform their 1964 New York debut of a funky style of jazz at the Jazz Corner Nightclub. Q.'s journey is filled with comedy and tragedy as he comes to grips with his craft, his attitudes toward women and the world!
