America's Musical Journey

Running Time: 40 minutes

Giant Screen Film Transfer

Jazz, blues, zydeco, old time country music and other variations on America's musical heritage are at the heart of MacGillivray Freeman's America's Musical Journey, a giant screen film that celebrates the unique diversity of cultures and creative risk-taking that characterize America. The film follows singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc as he traces Louis Armstrong's footsteps through the colorful locales and cultures where America's music was born, in iconic cities like New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Nashville, Miami and more. At each stop, audiences will experience uniquely American adventures that embody the country's trailblazing spirit -- paddle-wheel boating up the Mississippi Delta, flash mob dancing in Chicago or group skydiving above Memphis -- in scenes shot specifically for the giant screen. Along the way, audiences will meet the artists, music makers, storytellers and innovators who are shaping America's culture today.
