Lambert & Co.
Directed by D. A. Pennebaker and Richard Leacock • 1964 • United States
Starring Dave Lambert, Mary Vonnie, Sarah Boatner
A longtime fan of American jazz vocalist Dave Lambert, D. A. Pennebaker jumped at the chance to film him auditioning a new group of singers at RCA in 1964. The resulting film helped the director understand his artistic mission—as he put it, “Recording people and music as a kind of popular history that might not otherwise exist.”
