Improvisation
5 January 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

All right, Goodman was Big Band and not jazz and except for a few small pieces within, his music was rigorously orchestrated. But the thought of improvisation flows through this movie, from the hot, hot score to the fact that the characters and backgrounding are drawn just instants before they go into action -- sometimes to humorous effect when a girl is drawn at first with heavy thighs and sometimes with a tremendous amount of sexuality -- yes, this is a cartoon -- when the teenager comes out of the shower just as the towel on the towel rack is being drawn.

It would all vanish within few years as the classically trained musicians who made jazz into Big Band got slammed by rising costs and then the rise of rock and roll. Enjoy the remnants here.
