Yes, I love him. I love those hick shirts he wears with the boiled collars and the way he always has his coat buttoned wrong. It looks like a giraffe, and I love him. I love him because he's the sort of a guy that gets drunk on a glass of buttermilk. And I love the way he blushes right up over his ears. I love him because he... he doesn't know how to kiss, the jerk.

This is a movie for anyone who loves music, not only is it a great comically entertaining film, it draws you into the world of jazz at its contemporary beginning, This movie does for jazz what "Amadeus" (1984) did for Mozart and Classical music, it gives a great understanding and appreciation of all aspects of music, no matter what type of music you like, and what a great way to start your appreciation then with some of the greatest artist in jazz history; Benny Goodman,Lionel Hampton,Louis Armstrong, and Tommy Dorsey to name some of the jazz musicians in this wonderful and most entertaining film.. Just sit back and enjoy, you won't be disappointed, I promise
