"J.K. Simmons plays Terrence Fletcher, a jazz band leader at a top New York conservatoire. Miles Teller is Andrew, a gifted drummer dragged into Fletcher’s inner circle. But this is not cool jazz that Fletcher is teaching."

The answer to our skill-testing question, "What notable jazz musician does Fletcher tell his students about ?" was Charlie Parker.
