Joshua Boone and Solea Pfeiffer in A Jazzman's Blues

A Jazzman’s Blues, Tyler Perry finds his groove

Tyler Perry is not my favorite. But A Jazzman’s Blues looked different from his usual fare. I thought I’d take a look. If I didn’t like it, I’d just switch off and move on. It was different. And that difference resulted in a very good story about love and tragedy in the Jim Crow era.
