Watch: 'Sundays at The Triple Nickel' Short About a Harlem Jazz Party
"My brother, Phil, passed away on a Sunday… And shortly afterwards, my mother had the inspiration of honoring him with jazz music." This is one of those lovely short films that fills your heart to the brim with goodness and happiness. Which might be what we all need right now. Sundays at The Triple Nickel is a documentary short about a woman named Marjorie Eliot, who has hosted a weekly Sunday jazz party in her living room, in the Sugar Hill section of Harlem, for the past 28 years.
