There are bluesy reviews of a jazzman, see what critics say about Tyler Perry’s Netflix drama

Tyler Perry is an established director, with dozens of acting, writing, directing and producing credits to his name. But when the latest project of him, Blues of a jazz player is released to Netflix subscribers by the end of the month, the public will see the first screenplay Perry has ever written. The film, which Perry had been waiting for 27 years to make, which premiered on September 11 at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the reviews tell us more about this forbidden love story.

Blues of a jazz player is set in Georgia in the 1930s and 1940s and stars Joshua Boone and Solea Pfeiffer as Bayou and Leanne, lovers separated by class and race. This is not a Madea movie, so let’s see what the critics say. Owen Gleiberman of Variety says the film is full of melodrama, but in a way that somehow feels very new, and will make viewers want Tyler Perry to do the dramas more often. The critic says:

A Jazzman’s Blues consciously weaves the tropes of the Black experience with a kind of studio-system finesse. The musical sequences, ranging from boisterous juke-joint bluesy jams to beautifully staged club gigs (with swirling choreography by Debbie Allen), are hilarious. They give the film a soulful boost and make you want Perry to direct an all-out musical.
