“Cats of Any Color” looks at the symbiotic and syncopated relationship between Jewish and Black people in the history of American popular music. The title is based on a Louis Armstrong quote, that “it’s no crime for cats of any color to get together and blow. Race-conscious jazz musicians? Nobody could be who really knew their horns and loved the music.” 

Creator, compiler and curator Rebecca Ungerman uses the music of the Jazz Age, the Civil Rights Era and today, along with an all-star Tulsa cast, to shine a light on the positive, explosive musical relationship between Black and Jewish composers, performers and music industry

Mature audiences only
