In My Mind

When: Wed., June 30, 8 p.m. 2010

The elliptical and insider storytelling of In My Mind—a cross between a concert film and a documentary detailing the live salute of jazz pianist Jason Moran to Thelonious Monk—will leave casual fans with more questions than answers. But the performances themselves don't require much explanation. Soulful and eloquent from the bench, Moran leads a big band that lets Monk's legacy both breathe and bleed. Another by-product of Duke University's sizable investment in a horde of recordings and photographs from an artist-overrun New York City loft, In My Mind has its problems. They're more than offset by Moran's completely magnetic music and enveloping enthusiasm. The free screening starts at 8 p.m., followed by an open jazz jam. —Grayson Currin
