  • Supershow: The Last Great Jam of the '60s

    Various Artists

    Year: 1968

    Runtime: 1 hr 11 min

    In 1969 the cream of contemporary rock, blues, and jazz talent gathered in a disused linoleum factory to the west of London. Filmed over two days, they produced some magical collaborations, clearly inspired by the company they were all keeping. The list of featured artists is a who’s who of the period including Eric Clapton, Jon Hiseman’s Colosseum, Buddy Miles, Stephen Stills, Jack Bruce, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Modern Jazz Quartet, Buddy Guy, Roland Kirk Quartet and Glen Campbell, with a full supporting cast. The two day session was an opportunity for many of these musicians to play outside of their normal genre. Roland Kirk plays jazz with his quartet and then joins in with the rockers; the Modern Jazz Quartet give an interlude of ethereal calm before Buddy Guy, Jack Bruce, Buddy Miles and Dick Heckstall-Smith take liberties with "Mary Had A Little Lamb!"

  • The Life of a Jazz Singer

    Anita O' Day

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 1 hr 31 min

    Anita O’Day was one of the greatest of American jazz singers and this is her astonishing story—a journey of survival, and above all the endurance of her talent, told in a number of frank interviews with her and with those who knew her. Her career was long and eventful, spanning seven decades, her last album recorded when she was 84. Anita O’Day only ever wanted to be a singer and the film showcases performances that date back to the 50s with such artists as Gene Krupa, Roy Eldridge, Stan Kenton, Louis Armstrong and Hoagy Carmichael. She is shown teaching Billy Taylor how to be a jazz vocalist. She speaks candidly, always candidly, with Dick Cavett, Bryant Gumble and David Frost, with clips from interviews done on 60 Minutes and CBS This Morning. Bert Stern, commenting on his experience filming Anita perform Sweet Georgia Brown for his film Jazz on a Summer’s Day, said it was the greatest rendition of the song ever made. Anita was a musical genius and pioneer who broke reverse race barriers. She was commonly regarded as one of the top female artists of her time, together with Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday. The film portrays her as a woman who lived her life the way she wanted without ever looking back. She speaks openly about how she had to overcome great adversities, including a 20-year addiction to heroin and alcohol. She chose never to have children and married for only a brief period. She lived an often lonely life that was sustained only by her passion for music. Personalities talk about her quirky personality, while jazz critics and her few still living contemporaries speak of her extraordinary talent and how amazing it is that she continued to sing for so long. The film shows Anita on tour in Europe well into her eighties and her making that final recording, shortly before her death, the death of an icon.

  • Live at the Roundhouse London

    X-ray Spex

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 1 hr 6 min

    Seminal punk band X-ray Spex release a special live concert film recorded at 2008’s sell-out concert at the Roundhouse through new Future Noise Music imprint Year Zero. The first X-ray Spex live outing since 1979, this performance of their classic album Germ Free Adolescents saw singer Poly Styrene and bassist Paul Dean joined by friends Sid Truelove (anarcho-punk drummer with Rubella Ballet and Flux of Pink Indians), Mark Saxby (former guitarist with Arnold) and Flash (saxophone player, formerly with Rip Rig & Panic, Jah Wobble, Don Cherry and the Slits) at London’s Roundhouse on September 6th 2008 in front of 3,000 raucous fans. In 1976 X-ray Spex were formed by Poly Styrene placing an ad in NME and Melody Maker for "Young Punx Who Want To Stick It Together". For a generation sifting through the wreckage left by punk rock, X-ray Spex truly turned our world day-glo. The combination of tough, razor sharp riffs, kooky sax lines and Poly Styrene’s wonderful voice and incisive lyrics tearing into plastic consumerist society were perfect. Their 1978/79 stay was all too brief - a handful of memorable singles: debut Oh Bondage Up Yours! and the hits The Day The World Turned Day-Glo, Germ Free Adolescents and Highly Inflammable. Versions of all these songs are featured here, alongside previously unreleased new track Bloody War. X-ray Spex transcended punk, influencing a whole new scene of indie kids and post-Riot Grrrl rockers like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Gossip. The band’s innate genius and brilliant song writing makes them as relevant now as they were then. They are that rarest of things, a group that has never dated.
