A Place For Jazz is a 1992 documentary film by Richard Broadman. The film explores the vital music being made at the 1369 Jazz Club located in Cambridge’s Inman Square—same corner of the current 1369 Coffee House—and active from 1984 to 1988.
It features performances and conversations with local and visiting musicians including Steve Lacy, Bob Nieske, Archie Shepp, John Voigt, Joe Lovano, John Lockwood, Henry Threadgill, and Rebecca Parris, and provides a valuable insight into the scene and how the music was made, as well as offering an up-close view of the very colorful time and place.
