Quotes

Jack Sheldon: Chet, he never practiced at all. He could just play and he knew every song. He could just play any tune and he knew the melody, he could play jazz to it, and he always knew where he was. And it was real hard for me; I never knew where I was and I would always forget what bar we were in... in fact, where are we now?

See this film. Amazing to see how destructive genius can be. The film looks great, outstanding sound-track, great editing. I'm not really a jazz fan, but I loved watching and seeing this movie. It's going to be re-released this year.
