A great one from the Steeplechase Classics. Most of the CDs are Dexter Gordon and that´s fine, but it´s wonderful to have this extended live set of Brew Moore. And great tunes here, and a great Danish rhythm section.
An interesting documentary about the world of industrial musicals. The story is centered around Steve Young, a writer for David Letterman's shows, who got into these little known musicals when he had to seek out oddball records for skits on the Letterman show. He gradually became interested in and then obsessed with the music in these old trade show souvenirs. The film takes us along as Mr. Young meets fellow record collectors in this specialized field and as he meets some of the performers (including Florence Henderson and Martin Short) who worked in these industrial shows and he even gets to meet some of the composers of the shows, who are like legends in his eyes. The film is a little slow at first, but it has a couple of goods surprises, a little sadness and a boffo ending. The following song plays an integral role in the film, so if you can appreciate music like this, you might enjoy this film. I sure did.
