It seems I wasn't the only one curious about this elusive gentleman, Abi Lewis, a documentary film maker got in touch with me the other week to tell me that she's just finished making a documentary about his life and his beloved Jazz Cafe. The story of a club that stood as a disheveled and cluttered monument to a bygone era. A place that welcomed anyone who loved good music. Abi said: "I was driven to make the documentary, The Jazz Man, as like Keith himself, the jazz cafe was becoming old and worn and my gut feeling told me it was time someone documented Keith and the history of the venue before it was too late. Keith had, in the last few years been up against many challenging factors that had affected his business and home; later drinking licenses, no smoking policies, a bad economy and Keith's own stubbornness, which was part of his charm. I wanted to capture the venue for posterity and all that it means to the people who regularly go there."
I can't wait to see it. Keep your eye on The Jazz Man Documentary's Facebook page for more information.
