22/03/2015 – George Gershwin-Rhapsody in Blue (1924)

What Sunday’s are made of

 

 

Earlier this week, I was asked to suggest jazz albums, for someone who wasn’t really into jazz. After a few subtle questions, a bit of a think and a look through the albums I have, a list was compiled and sent off. As jazz was on my mind, I decided to listen to some albums. One of the albums I had suggested was the soundtrack to Woody Allen’s tour de force Manhattan. The standout moment of not only the score, but the film is the opening, when Allen is describing New York, with George Gershwin’s bombastic Rhapsody in Blue blaring in the background. At the time I wasn’t in the mood for music of this kind and opted for something along the lines of Miles Davis’ insanely addictive On the Corner and some ‘werid’ jazz comps. Now I am definitely in the mood. I am relaxed, but I want something more than background music. The only questions is, do I turn the record over, and what to contemplate while it’s on…
