If you like bebop, then this is an essential film, IMO.
It's about an American jazz sax player (played by Dexter Gordon) living in Paris. He's waging a battle with the bottle and with failing health, and then he meets a Parisian fan who inspires him to clean up his act and to make one last comeback.
Great story with a great vibe - I highly recommend it.
Ain't it the truth?
Dude! You have totally jacked up my schedule. I forgot about some of the live concerts that are on DVD for some of these guys. Monk's Straight up / No Chaser comes to mind. *Sigh* There goes my bad KungFu movie money.
