Vocalist, producer, actor / director, and Banana Puddin’ Jazz impresario Rome Neal originally came into the jazz community via his role in the one-man Laurence Holder play Monk. Researching the role, Neal became a regular at jam sessions. He soon went on to found the Banana Puddin’ Jazz series in 2003, at the legendary Nuyorican Poets’s Cafe. Twenty years later, Neal is a fixture in NYC jazz, as revered for his showmanship as for his famous banana pudding.
Theater produced and created by African-Americans helped mold generations influenced by their performance art and helped shape cultures.
Now, a new documentary hopes to show these Black creators, past and present, seeking stages to share their voices, entertain and inform on issues in front of a live audience and other performance platforms.

"With little money, no staff, Rome Neal might have just executed the most advanced concept in Jazz since Bebop. His online concert involving musicians from South America, Africa, and Asia, and Europe without middle persons reaping the profits, might very well save the art."
