Thursday night, the Brooks Museum of Art sponsored a showing of the remarkable documentary Thunder Soul, the amazing history of the Kashmere Stage Band from Kashmere High School in the Fifth Ward of Houston, TX. From 1968-1977 this band was the best high school jazz band in America. Those of us who watched the film got an unexpected benefit, as pianist Craig Baldwin and another member of the band were in Memphis and took questions from the audience after the movie. 7/12/12
