OK, this is just a music programme thing?
I’m fine with that. We start off with Duke Ellington?
It’s really nice!
I like all these tunes.
“Your cash ain’t nothing but trash / but I’m sure gonna get me some more”
And there’s skits!
Nat King Cole.
By Emacs! He’s amazeballs!
This is brilliant.
Heh. Kohn did ten music pics over a two year period? And then nothing? I wonder what the story there was, because there’s nothing here I don’t like: The performances are fantastic (especially that Nat King Cole thing), and the cinematography is fun and bouncy, and it’s tautly edited (no boring bits), and it’s… just a joy to watch.
If you’re not into watching live performances, you might not find this fascinating, but for me it’s:
