The spirit of Monk and Coltrane live on in the New Day
Blues Band's award-winning blend of in-the-pocket grooves and free-jazz
impulses. Local jazz patriarch Donald Washington (reeds, flute) leads
a gifted ensemble featuring Faye Washington (vocals), Sam Favors (piano),
Jeff Bailey (bass), and Kevin Washington (drums) through expressive
improvisation as well as enlivened jazz standards and originals.
MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE
BY H. C. POTTER
Everything that can possibly go wrong does for Jim Blandings (Cary
Grant) when he has a house built to suit his family's every whim.
The pricey construction process nearly drives him into financial and
marital ruin until, naturally, he learns the true value of family
life in this classic Hollywood comedy of errors. 1948, U.S., 94 minutes.
