It looks like yet another big star has become a 3D convert and he’s even closing the 3D Film and Music Festival to prove it.
The fifth annual 3D Film & Music Festival closes tonight with a free live performance by Quincy Jones and the Global Gumbo All-Stars at the Mixing Room at the JW Marriott across the street from the Regal Theater at LA Live.
Quincy Jones will appear live on stage with a collection of young musicians he has discovered that he considers to be the best and brightest on the planet. The Global Gumbo All-Stars, Greg Phillinganes, Alfredo Rodriguez, Francisco Mela, Andreas Varady, Peter Slavov and Nikki Yanofsky create a global mix of jazz styles from Cuba, Brazil, Canada, Africa and the USA.
Their first performance was filmed live in 3D at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2010 with special guest Herbie Hancock and was released as a 60-minute feature, “Quincy Jones and the Global Gumbo All-Stars Live at Montreux.” The 3D films have been playing continuously at the Grammy Museum following Thursday’s world premiere documentary “Experience Montreux” at the festival.
At 7:00pm, the Grammy Museum L.A. Live will show the 3D feature “Quincy Jones and the Global Gumbo All-Stars Live at Montreux” in the Clive Davis Theatre. At the Museum shortly after, Quincy Jones and Montreux Jazz Festival founder
Claude Nobs will host a Q&A session then move down the alley to the Mixing Room at JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live for a 9:00pm (approximate time) performance. This surprise performance will also be shown live on LG CInema 3D TV’s.
Capacity of the Mixing Room is limited and the hotel will accommodate an overflow crowd in the grand lobby. Doors open at 7:00pm; admission is first come first served. The live performance at the hotel is free and open to the public.
Also, in a live 3D first, a special 3D TV patio adjacent to the Mixing Room will be broadcasting the performance live on glasses-free 3D screens using Ultra-D technology from Stream TV Networks, enabling guests to experience the show live in 3D without glasses. “This is the 5th year for our 3D Film Festival, and we are so happy to share the legendary Quincy Jones’ latest project with the world live and in 3D at The Mixing Room at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live,” concludes Christopher Crescitelli, founder of the 3DFF.
