The Cotton Club by Francis Ford Coppola( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1928 New York, spirits are high and jazz, dancing and gangsters rule supreme. Harlem's Cotton Club is in the center of it all, where rich Upper-Eastsiders mix with dressed-up mobsters. On stage is gifted coronet player Dixie Dwyer, who dreams of the big time, and tap sensation Sandman Williams who can't touch his girl, the lovely singer Lila Rose Oliver, because of strict club rules. As tension rises, so do tempers, and the nightclub becomes a pressure-cooker of jilted loves and mob jobs

Pretty baby by Louis Malle( Visual )

18 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally acclaimed director Louis Malle has taken a taboo subject - child prostitution - and has created in Pretty Baby a film of humanity and beauty. E.J. Bellocq (Keith Carradine) is a photographer obsessed with the prostitutes in New Orleans' red-light district. Violet (12-year-old Brooke Shields), a young girl in 1917, bewitches Carradine with her curiosity and naive coquettishness. Malle's level-headed treatment of this controversial theme and exceptional performances by the entire cast (especially Susan Sarandon as Violet's prostitute mother) makes Pretty Baby a must-see for all serious film fans

The great Ray Charles by Ray Charles( Recording )

1 edition published in 1987 and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These early Charles recordings come from his first L.A. sessions for the Swingtime label in 1949 and 1950, and they present a still-developing artist who was already full of both power and finesse. Presented here mostly in a small-group setting, backed by guitar and bass. Just a few years earlier, Charles had been concentrating on a more mannered, Nat "King" Cole style, but by this time, he was fully immersed in R&B. The slow, yearning "Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand" has what may be the only example of blues celeste. On "A Sentimental Blues," the vocal influence of Cole is still apparent, with Charles seeming to be in a transitional phase between pop and blues. However, blues definitely rules the day on these sessions, from "How Long Blues to "Sittin' On Top of the World." Brother Ray's soulful piano work and emotive vocals are showcased to fine effect throughout. THE GREAT Ray Charles ultimately paints a picture of an artist in transition, but still immediately captivating, whatever the style might be
