    Synopsis

    Jack Sheldon survived the demons of drugs, alcohol and unspeakable personal tragedy. His signature sound continues to paint the landscape of American music. As friend Billy Crystal puts it, Jack Sheldon is "the last cat standing" from the bebop generation. Trying to Get Good features historic footage with Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton and other legends, on-camera interviews with Clint Eastwood, Billy Crystal, Merv Griffin, Chris Botti, Tierney Sutton, Johnny Mandel and many more, as well as never before seen performances with The Jack Sheldon Orchestra.
