FEEDBACK/ QUOTES

"In a town full of musicians that are considered uniquely talented, Tony Green is above and beyond in a category on his own. "Gypsy Jazz" -the Django Reinhardt inspired music that Tony Green plays with his small ensembles is some of the finest and rarest music played in New Orleans. As a matter of fact, with Tony spending more time than ever in Italy, the opportunity to hear him play his music is one of the best parts of springtime in New Orleans."

Michael Dominici, the New Orleans Music Show, WWOZ 90.7 FM

MOVIE INFO

54 MIN  -  NOT RATED  -  16:9  -  STEREO

ORIGIN

This project was conceived from curiosity. Tony is an amazing guitarist who is beloved in New Orleans. He is also an amazing classically trained artist what does everything from watercolors to etchings, oil to portraits. Then, I discovered he is a unique and controversial politically aware patriot that cares more about truth than his reputation or money.

INSPIRATION - NEW ORLEANS

New Orleans is one of the most unique and endlessly interesting places on earth. One cannot help being inspired there. From the music, culture, art and broad range of people that call it home.


If you can’t find yourself thinking differently after experiencing it, you have a dead heart.


New Orleans brings out the best in people. Everyone that call it home are welcoming, kind, and most of all – accepting. Anything goes in New Orleans, and often does. There simply is no other place like it. New Orleans is a living, organic being that needs to be nurtured and fed. And, it will reward you for your efforts. Tony Green is a product of New Orleans, and exemplifies all of its best qualities.
