A movie worth listening to
5 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

The score of UJS features the trumpet trumpet playing of the legendary Maynard Ferguson. Ferguson, often described as one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, is simply astounding, so much so that you can easily overlook the movie's flaws.
