Last week’s Jazz Trivia Question: This Oscar winning actor learned to play the sax for this Best Picture nominated film about industrial spying, but, a professional jazz musician actually “ghosted” the recorded sax parts in the movie. For Jazz Trivia Expert status, name the actor, name the movie, and name the “ghost” player.
The answers are Gene Hackman, The Conversation, and Justin Gordon. Chris Craddock was the only one to answer correctly, thus earning Jazz Trivia Expert status. Congratulations!
