[edit] Information

PLAY YOUR OWN THING describes musically, visually, spiritually, but never theoretically the development process of Jazz in Europe with its emancipation and expertise, its freedom and individualism, the development of numerous styles and variations, the specifically European influences and the productive differences with American ways of playing from the beginning of the Jazz Age up until today. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Charlie Parker stand for the great era in Jazz, but who knows Miroslav Vitous, Pierre Michelot, Krzysztof Komeda, Palle Mikkelborg, Tomasz Stanko, or René Urtreger? The film is a tribute to these champion performers, who, after World War II, were infected by the Jazz "virus" from overseas, but were able to create paths of their own. Containing myriad distinctive qualities traditional to each country and their musical heritage, they invented a totally new form of musical expression, a sort of European identity in Jazz. These artists became true musical pioneers, opening the door for the so-called European avant-garde up until today. PLAY YOUR OWN THING traces back through the encounters and musical interchanges of cultures, which are different, but have always nourished each other.
