We said that we would give ya’ll the the first part of the documentary The Last Stop on the 4 Train when we dropped the trailer last week. Because we’re women and men of our words, we’re pleased to inform you that the wait is over and you can finally catch the Last Stop on the 4 Train. Follow the journey of emcee/visionary John Robinson, jazz enthusiast/radio DJ, Thomas Simmons, and vocalist T.C. III (son of Trudy Pitts and Bill “Mr. C” Carney) as they ride the 4 train to it’s final destination in the Bronx. The trio’s documented journey is a pilgrimage to Woodlawn Cemetery; the final resting place for legendary jazz masters like Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, Jackie McLean, Max Roach, Milt Jackson, Lionel Hampton and more.
Last Stop on the 4 Train is a film about the conversations and stories led by three music gurus as they pay homage by visiting the grave sites of jazz’s greatest masters. The film is a love letter to the power of music folklore as told by music lovers.
