The best of jazz & blues( Visual )

Blue melodies( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musical shorts, produced to merely fill out the film program, have in many cases acquired more value than the features they once supported. They offer unparalleled opportunities to see and hear great artists in action - and sometimes present surprisingly gutsy subject matter via truly innovative film technique. Case in point: this volume presents priceless blues-oriented footage from the early years of sound. The legendary "Empress of the blues", Bessie Smith, stars in her only film, the once-notorious musical drama "St. Louis Blues". Teenaged Billie Holiday performs with Duke Ellington's Orchestra in "Symphony In Black", perhaps the greatest of Ellington's shorts. Another Ellington piece, "Bundle Of Blues", spotlights his favorite band singer, Ivie Anderson, while George Dewey Washington's powerful baritone transcends some stereotypical situations in "Ol' King Cotton". And, months before her Broadway debut, an unnervingly girlish Ethel Merman defends her life before a judge in the surreal "Her Future", shot at the Paramount studio in Merman's hometown (Astoria, Queens). Also staring in this volume - definitely in a lighter vein - are bandleader Vince Lopez (who conducts a bouncy "St. Louis Blues" in "Those Blues"), Cab Calloway ("Jitterbug Party"), and Bing Crosby performing his theme song "Where The Blue Of The Night Meets The Gold Of The Day".--Back of container
