Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Tony Bennett BBC2 Sat 14th 7.30 pm

Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends Synopsis: Legendary crooner Tony Bennett reflects over his life story with his friend and jazz enthusiast Clint Eastwood.
In this Arena documentary 'The Music Never Ends', Bennett traces his musical lineage through a wealth of jazz archive and much loved favourite musicals, highlighted with footage from his 2005 performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival. A true showbiz professional, Bennett continues to sing all his songs with tremendous gusto and enjoyment whilst presenting a well-rounded and affectionate portrait of his life and work. The film offers a glittering cast of contributors including Martin Scorsese, Mel Brooks, Mitch Miller, Harry Belafonte and Alec Baldwin.
My thanks to Val, Jim & Liz for drawing this program to my attention although I must confess that I have my reservations about the 'glittering cast of contributers'.
