From the moment Al Jolson sang “Toot, Toot, Tootsie” in 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” movies have been filled with music. It is the unseen character in every film, setting the mood, advancing the plot and thrilling the audience. Pure Imagination, Glazier’s program based on his latest recording, is being released in the summer of 2019 and includes a Hollywood overture, a medley from “West Side Story”, “The Man That Got Away”, “Embraceable You”, “Just in Time”, “People" and more, concluding with “An American in Paris.” The show features rare audio and video clips, and exclusive interviews with legendary Hollywood figures. Glazier, star of three award-winning PBS specials, is hailed as a master storyteller who brings music to life with backstories and fascinating history. He is at home playing a wide range of musical styles from classical to jazz.
