KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON was one of the most critically acclaimed documentaries of 2014, depicting the friendship of music legend and teacher Clark Terry, 89 and Justin Kauflin, a 23-­year­-old, blind piano prodigy.  One of Clark Terry's greatest passions was jazz education, so it is in that same spirit that the team of KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON has committed to share his positive messages through educational screenings.  See below for more information, reviews & testimonials, and how to receive a free download of the movie.

"... is ultimately an examination of the pursuit of greatness.  It is a grueling and demanding endeavor for sure, but also, for Mr. Terry and anyone lucky enough to enter his orbit, a source of unending joy" 

 

-A. O. Scott, New York Times:  Critic's Choice

"If you think you're having a rough day or can't escape from whatever hole life has dug for you,  Kauflin's worldview should give you a little persepective.  Kauflin and Terry make a fascinating pair ... These two men, 70 years apart, inspired each other, and that inspiration can be infectious"

-Antonio Garcia, VCU Jazz

"Justin is a natural teacher with his honesty, sensitivity, temperament and ability to inspire"

 

-Liz Barnes, Governor's School 

"A world class artist like Justin, only a few years older than the students, has a particular resonance"
