Gian Maria Volonté,
Brilliant Music, Mark Sovel steals the show as Frankie Trumbaeur.
Although the timeline can be a bit confusing, this is a beautiful peek into the hot jazz age and the true life characters who lived it.The music scenes are the best ever filmed of this era. No closer representation can be found of Bix and these legends at work. The cast is great and Mark Sovel steals the show with his sublime and witty portrayal of sax legend Frankie Trumbaeur. There are some flat points but overall one must be awed by life as it was in the 1920s.
