The Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd.) presents an evening celebrating the life and music of legendary jazz saxophonist, bandleader and arranger Vince Giordano. The night kicks off with the Texas debut of There’s a Future In the Past, a critically acclaimed documentary that centers on the work and personality of Giordano, and depicts both the beauty and struggle of practicing the musical stylings of early 20th century jazz in the midst of the 21st century. But the real treat takes places shortly after, when Vince Giordano himself graces the Texas Theatre stage alongside local revivalist act the Singapore Slingers — an orchestra that shares Giordano’s affinity for American music of the ’20s and ’30s. The screening and following Q&A happen at 8 p.m. Friday, March 24. Tickets are $15 at thetexastheatre.com.
