Clark Terry & Justin Kauflin ‘Keep On Keepin’ On’

By Michael J. Casey
Born in St. Louis, Mo., “a trumpet player’s town,” on December 14, 1920, Terry fashioned his first trumpet from scraps found at the local junkyard. But from those humble beginnings he went on to play with Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and so on.

Three came back

‘The Best Years of Our Lives’ and the returning soldier

By Michael J. Casey
While they return home conquering heroes, it gets them little more than a pat on the back. Al returns to the bank and Fred takes up his old position at the soda shop. It does not go well for either. Al starts hitting the bottle and Fred is fired when he gets into a fistfight with a customer who casually remarks that the soldiers fought the wrong war.

Team Jarmusch

‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ makes vampires cool again

By Michael J. Casey
Which is why it was such a shock when writer/director Jim Jarmusch announced that he, too, was making a vampire movie. One of the hippest directors around, Jarmusch isn’t one for the mainstream or shifts in pop culture. Instead, Jarmusch favors personal projects.

Panahi defies Iran once more with ‘Closed Curtain’

By Michael J. Casey
In 2010, after arrests for civil disobedience, Panahi was sentenced to six years of house arrest and a 20-year ban on filmmaking.

Nothing to do with death and dying

Music makes us all ‘Alive Inside’

By Michael J. Casey
Armed with a simple iPod, Cohen visits patients with varying degrees of dementia, Alzheimer’s and, in one case, schizophrenia to see if music will stir something in them. It does. The music starts, and these comatose patients spring to life. Most sing, many dance and some are so overcome with emotion they burst into tears.
