Together with many of Scott's old friends like Quincy Jones, Joe Pesci and James Moody, Kemper sacrifices all he has to pursue his dream. As he gathers some of the world's greatest jazz musicians, Jimmy blooms with the attention and with a chance to record again. The film soon documents a race ... Written by Andy Hazel
