Jazz at its best, 13 May 2011
I first saw Jazz on a summer's day the year it was produced and the image of Anita O'Day flirting with the microphone, in her wide-brimmed hat, has stayed with me since then. When I bought the DVD a few weeks ago everything came back: the America's Cup boat out in the waters of Newport, Rhode Island, Louis Armstrong playing his trumpet and singing in his rough voice, Mahalia Jackson's unbelievable timing etc.
I don't think a better jazz film has ever been produced. And partly thanks to the camera of Bert Stern, who could find the essence of the artists.
Really a great experience!
