Earlier this year it was announced that Oscar Award-winner Jamie Foxx signed on in association with his FoxxKing Entertainment to executive produce the music documentary, ‘Thunder Soul.’
The docu-feature follows the alumni from Houston’s acclaimed 1970’s Kashmere High School Stage Band as they regroup 35 years later for a tribute concert in honor of their band leader, Conrad “Prof” Johnson. The 92-year-old was responsible for breaking the color barrier and transforming the school’s struggling jazz band into a world-class funk powerhouse in the early 1970s. This film is Directed by Mark Landsman
The film is scheduled for release in September 2011.
