This is a documentary celebration of the Eastside neighborhood of Los Angeles, down which runs the Central Avenue corridor. From 1920 to 1965, it celebrates Central Avenue with the likes of William “Buddy” Collette and his sextet, Jackie Kelso and Clora Bryant. It also celebrates the multi-cultural make up of the residents of that corridor, many who would never set foot in a nightclub.
