Wichita Jazz Festival presents "This Is Love" Film Screening with a performance by Rudy Love & The Love Family

Date: March 28, 2019,
Venue: Crown Uptown Theatre - 3207 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita
Sponsor: Wichita Jazz Festival

The Event:

At the age of 18, Rudy Love was touring the US with Little Richard. By the 1970s, he was working as a pilot vocalist for The Temptations and Marvin Gaye, his songs were being recorded by Esther Phillips and Isaac Hayes, and he was appearing on records with Ray Charles and Sly Stone. Yet, his solo career and the albums he produced with his Love Family band failed to achieve success, due partially to dodgy record label practices that saw his recordings distributed under the names of other artists. Now, at the age of 70, Rudy Love is beginning to see his work rediscovered by artists including Jay-Z, and is finally achieving the respect he has long deserved.

Featuring interviews with legendary musicians George Clinton and Mick Fleetwood, THIS IS LOVE is a story of artistic struggle told with a sense of redressing past injustices. Exposing the shady industry wheelings and dealings that stretched throughout the 1960s and 1970s, John Alexander's documentary tells Rudy Love's story with deep respect for an incredible artist, and shows Rudy now, still going strong and filled with the love of music that has made his life's work celebrated amongst enthusiasts worldwide.

Presented by theĀ Wichita Jazz Festival.
