Directed by Alan Hicks / 86 min.

23-year-old blind piano prodigy Justin Kauflin, who suffers terrible stage fright, finds his way to jazz legend and teacher Clark Terry, 89. When Justin is invited to compete in an elite international competition, Clark’s health takes a turn for the worse. KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON is witness to two friends tackling the toughest challenges of their interwoven lives.

Clark Terry, now 93, was Quincy Jones’ first teacher and mentor to Miles Davis. He is among the few performers ever to have played in both Count Basie’s and Duke Ellington’s bands. In the ‘60s he broke the color barrier as the first African-American staff musician at NBC - on The Tonight Show.
