For Anyone Wants To Know What Good Music Is!
5 December 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This is a good musical short that I caught just in time and recorded from Turner Classic Movies. This great Big Band short is rarely seen, but when seen you'll watch it over and over. 10 mins long but its very full. Great Band, Great Female Singers. Nan Wynn is what you call a Big Band Singer, she got that sweet, clear voice, and The Three Symphonettes are one of the many great girl singers of the time. This is music wihtout the nudity and cursing, that tells what love is really all about. If you can catch this short, your lucky.
