“Uncovering why a great be-bop jazz singer fell into near-total obscurity is only one accomplishment of Raymond De Felitta’s magnificent and moving ‘Tis Autumn; The Search For Jackie Paris’.”

“Part adoring fan letter, part meditation on the elusive nature of fame and success, part investigative piece, “Tis Autumn” is a music documentary of uncommon richness.”

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter (click to read full review)


“A frank and moving treatise on lost love, wasted chances and the pitfalls of monstrous egoism. It’s a fascinating tale that reveals as much about the cutthroat nature of the music biz as it does about this witty, nostalgia-prone elderstatesman.”

Tom Huddleston, Time Out (Click to read full review)


“A compelling documentary that presents a tantalizing mystery and packs a powerful emotional punch.”

“Jackie Paris is pitted against an inexperienced documentary-maker…the result is an often hilarious hotchpotch of cack-handed research and dim-witted interview techniques.”
