Trailer Thursday 4/24

Welcome to another edition of “Trailer Thursday”!

Most of you are more than likely not aware that April is National Jazz Appreciation Month, so I figured why not share the trailer from one of my all time favorite films, which happens to feature many of greatest jazz musicians of the time, A Song is Born.

I first saw this back in the day when A & E would actually show classic movies. I do miss those days!

Starring Danny Kaye and Virginia Mayo, this film, which in some ways is a retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, is best known for its cavalcade of musicians including Mel Powell, Charlie Barnet, Tommy Dorsey, Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton, and the immortal Louis Armstrong, each playing themselves. Also, Benny Goodman has a role as one of the professors. Check out the trailer and if you like what you see, go watch and enjoy the film!
