A jazzman’s blues was a passion project for Tyler Perry
Tyler Perry previously spotted The blues of a jazzman at the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Fest in August. The filmmaker described the film as a passion project that he has long been excited to finally bring to the public.
“I’ve waited a quarter of a century to tell this story, and now is the perfect time and Netflix is the perfect partner,” Perry recently said. It’s my labor of love, the one I want to do more than anything. ”
On social media, he also said, “About 26 years ago I was struggling and not sure if I would be able to break into the entertainment business. I had managed to sneak (because I was broke) into a room called seven guitars, and I had the chance to speak with the great August Wilson at an after-party. I didn’t know how he would receive me because the kind of plays I was doing weren’t Broadway, but he was so kind and encouraging and inspiring that I went home and wrote my very first screenplay. I called him The blues of a jazzman.”
The blues of a jazzman is set to begin streaming on Netflix on September 23, 2022. Subscribers can stream the film on Netflix.com.
