    Vision - ON

    Inspired by Teddy Rosso's recent thread on "groovy club scenes" - I've posted up a few of my favourite music related film and tv excerpts - will add more in due course.

    Club and party scenes will probably feature quite strongly...

    Enjoy.

    1. A Matter Of Choice (1963)

    A British B-Movie featuring a great club sequence - the jazz, the dancing and the dialogue make this an all out personal favourite.

    2. Sapphire (1959)

    "'cos when they hear the beat of the bongo..." which is proved by this club sequence - driving afro-cuban jazz, wild dancing and terrific ties .

    Anyone know what the tune is? It also features in another British movie from around the same time...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w83ED7tpHxg

    3. Georgy Girl (1966)

    Short but very sweet club scene - marvel as Alan Bates tries to get into the groove .

    I still dont know what the tune featured is - anyone know?

    4. Devils Of Darkness (1965)

    Women smoking cigars, jazz and wild abandon. What more do you need for a party?

    The second jazz piece featured in this scene scene is probably right up Alanmck's street...

    Isn't it. I love it even when he's just walking down a corridor. He really does WALK down a corridor.

    39. "Mickey One" - opening sequence

    The fantastic opening sequence from "mickey one" - up there with the start of "touch of evil" for me, with Stan Getz on sax duties.



    40. "Eva" - club scene

    The radiant Jeanne Moreau in one of my favourite club scenes from the Joseph Losey film "eva" - full on afro-cuban drumming to boot.

    Cor. What he does with his head at 1:20 is brilliant.
    I learnt to do a half-decent moonwalk just last year and now I'm determined to learn that, too.

    38. From the film "Toto Di Notte no. 1": rosa morena twist - armando trovaoili

    Never a day goes by in Italy without one (or more) Toto films being shown on the TV..I was in Italy recently and remembered this clip - a lovely twister with Spanish overtones.

    Glad to have been of service chaps.

    Back in the 80s I found myself playing records at the Monday Jazz Room at the WAG - and I shamelessly dropped this as Slim Gaillard was in the house that night:



    After my set finished the great man himself came over to shake my hand and thanks me for playing his record! Such was the measure of the man...

    Sometime ago I was contemplating uploading the 4-part "Arena" special on the amazing Slim Gaillard from my Betamax recordings (even episode 3 which is missing the last 5 minutes thanks to the live bowls on BBC2 that night overrunning...) but I never did get round to it, no matter now as all 4 episodes are now on youtube!

    Slim Gaillard, what can you say about possibly the hippest man ever to have walked the earth? Watch Slim himself take you through his amazing life... Vout!

    They don't make TV programmes like this anymore unfortunately...

    I was about to upload my copy from Betamax tape (with the last 10 minutes missing ) only to find that someone had relatively recently done the honours and uploaded the whole doc.
