Get ready for a night of song, dance and fun when FilmOut San Diego presents a double feature of Rocky Horror Picture Show/Shock Treatment, two of the biggest cult films ever to grace the silver screen. Rocky Horror remains in limited release nearly four decades after its initial run, with audiences across the globe devouring nearly every word. Six years later, Shock Treatment followed the adventures of the Majors family, and while it was not as popular as the original, it still has a high level of campiness that ensures its legacy on the midnight film circuit.

While each musician was talented, there were too many solo's during each piece. As well, it seemed like the trio was extremely restrained, and perhaps that is their style. I was expecting a rousing, blues-gospel-oriented jazz performance, but it was almost more like the sounds you'd hear at Nordstrom's. Pretty-sounding, but very lightweight and without soul. The description of it was more stirring than the performance itself.
<p>Rhythmic and powerful, Marcus Roberts Trio explores the blues and gospel traditions that are part of the essence of jazz. What a Wonderful World features selections from Jelly Roll Morton and arrangements of songs popularized by the greatest jazz improviser of all time, Louis Armstrong, as well as the queen of gospel music, Mahalia Jackson.</p>
