Stony Island (1978)

Format:   DVD 
 
After the members of a Chicago jazz band lose their saxophonist to an untimely death, they see their future as performers jeopardized by the appearance of a troublesome New Orleans pianist designated as the late musician's next of kin. While trying to put together a worthy funeral for their departed colleague, the ghetto-raised artists also fight to establish themselves as professionals. Gritty, heartfelt low-budget musical stars Richard Davis, Edward Stoney Robinson, and Rae Dawn Chong. 95 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
