Before moving from London to New York in 2002, British-born bandleader James Langton led the internationally acclaimed Pasadena Roof Orchestra and the Solid Senders Orchestra, and spent many years painstakingly assembling his now massive library of arrangements, many of which come from the archives of the original bands. Soloist Dan Levinson is New York’s preeminent swing clarinetist and one of the foremost interpreters of Goodman and Shaw in the world.

This time they’re performing a newly arranged jazz score for the world premiere of Universal’s new digital restoration of “Sensation Seekers”, an important late film by the most celebrated female director of the silent era, Lois Weber. Filming her own original screenplay, Weber relates a classic Jazz Age tale of flaming youth, centered on the scandal-prone Long Island socialite “Egypt” Hagen (Billie Dove) and her redemptive relationship with a sympathetic clergyman (Raymond Bloomer).
