A veteran big city detective investigates the ritual slaying of a clan of Colorado Mormons. Based on a true story.
In 1991, Raymond De Felitta was listening to a Jazz station and heard a singer by the name of
Jackie Paris. Entranced by his style and technique, De Felitta began researching Paris. He
learned Paris had opened for Lenny Bruce, that his voice was admired by among others, Ella
Fitzgerald, Nat Cole and Sarah Vaughn. However, his research abruptly ended when he read in
The Biographical Dictionary of American Music, that Paris had died in 1977. De Felitta thought
that was the end of the story but one night in March of 2004, he was reading the New Yorker
Magazine and saw an advertisement listing Paris' comeback at the Jazz Standard. Stunned, he
wondered where had Paris been all these years, what had come of his life and why had a singer
of this talent fallen into such obscurity.
`Tis Autumn - The Search For Jackie Paris is not just a documentary about a great but
unheralded jazz singer. It's a film that explores the very nature of what it is to live the life of an
artist--any artist. Filmmaker Raymond De Felitta examines the life of cult favorite jazz singer
Jackie Paris, but at the same time he might as well be exploring the life of any artist in any
discipline, too many of whom share the same fate that Paris did the explosive debut followed by
the years of ups and downs, the constant hope that success, though out of reach, is around the
corner, the private tragedies that grow out of artistic frustration, and the final, self-inflicted
wounds which all too often cause the once promising to descend into bitterness and chaos, a
prelude to vanishing completely.
Working with rare found footage and new interviews with jazz legends such as Billy Taylor,
George Wein, Mark Murphy and Ruth Price, as well as the final concert footage and last
interviews Jackie Paris ever gave -- De Felitta constructs an emotional mystery story which asks
the question, who or what is to blame when a great talent goes from sensation to footnote during
their life span?
