Altman's "Kansas City"

Sun Feb 2 12:38:51 EST 1997

Robert Altman's film "Kansas City" was released on video this week. It
features a great soundtrack of depression era swing/jazz, much of it very
bluesy. I was fortunate enough to catch a PBS show called Great Performances
which was a companion film of extended performances recorded during filming.
These takes were too long to be included in the film but too good to end up
on the cutting room floor.

You'll have to watch carefully to catch the fast-scrolling musician credits
at the end, or cue up the old VCR.
