Saturday Song!

The Arts


While I’m having sight problems I’m using pre-prepared blog items every few days to get me through; they’re all new, but I can’t write lengthy perambulatory pieces about London at the moment.

This week’s song comes from the opening of the 1979 Palme D’Or winner at the Cannes Film Festival ‘All That Jazz’, about the life of Bob Fosse, who nearly killed himself through overwork while simultaneously producing a film and a play. Start it at 1:30 for a glimpse of the audition process, set to George Benson’s ‘On Broadway’.

    Wow! What memories did this bring back. One of my favorite films and favorite songs. Fosse’s choreography influenced many who followed and made musicals more interesting in the process.
