Those Blues was one period musical short of the jazz age I enjoyed that had no contrived situations
21 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

This musical short that I discovered on the Kino DVD-Hollywood Rhythm Vol. 1: The Best of Jazz and Blues-has bandleader Vincent Lopez just basically performing the W. C. Handy composition, "St. Louis Blues", which is on another short of the same name on this DVD that stars Bessie Smith. Unlike many of the other shorts there, there is no contrived plot. It's just Lopez with his orchestra and chorus performing with the music's end the short's as well. And despite many cuts and the fact this is in black-and-white, you may feel you're in the audience enjoying a live show. So on that note, Those Blues is worth a look for music fans of the '30s decade.
