If You Wanna Know What Good Music Is?
5 December 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

If you wanna know what good music is, its this. Anyone who wants to know what the Big Band Era was like, this is a short to look for, I enjoy it myself, you can catch, if you can on Turner Classic Movies. I own this myself. This music is what good music is, without the cursing and nudity, you can listen to music like this and hear about what love is really about.
