Tears
Tears

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent version of a Django classic, 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tears (MP3 Download)
"Tears" is Django Reinhardt classic and Stochelo Rosenberg does it full justice, with great technique and feeling. The accompaniment is great too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and moving, 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Barney's Version [DVD] (DVD)
Starting off with comedy during Barney's youth, it moves through his time back in Montreal as a young man through to his old age. Funny at times but moving too. A very good ensemble cast and his usual excellent performance from Paul Giamatti.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice interpretation of French standard, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two excellent guitarists give this standard a nice workout. As ever, Bireli shows his true mastery of gypsy jazz style.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough Django, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: St. James Infirmary (MP3 Download)
As ever the guitar playing is excellent but there isn't much of it. Perhaps Django fwanted a rest and left it to the clarinet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent drama, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In The House [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
The script is very witty and it is well played by all the cast members. the only reservation is that there was no real chemistry between the two leads - how had they got together and why were they still together?


THE COLONEL & THE GOVERNOR
THE COLONEL & THE GOVERNOR
Price: £11.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Two greats, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two great guitarists playing superbly and having fun. Just two guitars could be repetitive and boring but Martin and Tommy chose interesting material (for example "Bernie's Tune") and created interesting versions (for example, Lullaby of Birdland"). If you like good guitar-playing, you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a singer!, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rimona Francis (MP3 Download)
This CD is full of original material (unusual time signatures and son on). The international musicians show great teamwork (hear the live "Gingi"). Rimona Francis displays superb technique throughout. Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Limp, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quartet [DVD] (DVD)
There seem to be two films here: "Carry on at the care home" with Billy Connolly and a more serious study of old opera singers with the other three stars. The latter all give excellent performances but the writing and/or direction are not up to much.


Tainted Love
Tainted Love

5.0 out of 5 stars His own take on songs old and new, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tainted Love (Audio CD)
Robin Nolan and his trio play a wide range of songs in their own style. "and I Love her" is excellent while "Don't You want Me" and Tainted Love" make you hear these familiar songs differently. A great CD from a great guitarist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Psychological Thriller, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Crime [DVD] (DVD)
A very entertaining psychological thriller with good performances from both the female stars and an unexpected twist at the end.
