The Man Who Makes Jazz
As journalist and jazz enthusiast
Michael Dineen watched the 1984 gangster film The Cotton Club, he felt that at last Hollywood had done justice to his favourite music. He was convinced that original recordings had been dubbed on the soundtrack. Now he admits he was hoodwinked by Bob Wilber , the man who recreated the classic sounds of the Jazz Age for the film.
Bob Wilber explains to Michael Dineen how he makes early improvised jazz come back to life, with an exclusive foretaste of music from his new film project on Bix Beiderbecke. Producer Gwyn Richards. Stereo
