Description: The Russian Jazzman (or more appropriately Jazzmen) is set in the '20s, when American jazz music was not recommended by Soviet ideologists. The film follows the misadventures of four street musicians who scratch out a meager living playing two-bit engagements here and there and dream of being a real jazz band. The picture is a loving and charming tribute to the first Russian jazz enthusiasts.~ Yuri German, All Movie Guide
