'A Jazzman's Blues' is almost here. The latest project from Tyler Perry — his first ever screenplay — is finally coming to screens via Netflix. TheGrio sat down with the media mogul to break down the project, how he cast the two leads and more. As theGrio previously reported, Perry wrote the screenplay for 'A Jazzman's Blues 26 years ago. Starring Joshua Boone and Solea Pfeiffer, the film is a 'sweeping tale of forbidden love,' that, 'unspools forty years of secrets and lies soundtracked by juke joint blues in the deep South,' Netflix notes in the description.
