kids who make music

At the suggestion of daughter Caitlin I watched this movie yesterday. It's the story of a group of kids at a high school in Florida who enter a competition sponsored by Wynton Marsalis for young jazz musicians. The documentary takes you from the musicians' audition to get into the top jazz class at school, through their metamorphosis into a spectacular jazz band. Splendid, feel-good movie.
