In the world of beating on percussion devices, Terry Bozzio is one of those drummers who could probably compile a shorter list of prominent fellow musicians in the rock and jazz worlds with whom he has not yet played, to contrast with the long list of folks on his musical resume with whom he has collaborated, recorded or toured.

posted: 09/26/2014 3:05 a.m. Discuss

Every major film festival has its thing: Cannes features stunning stars arriving by speedboat and a wealth of international films playing before well-heeled audiences on the French Riviera; Sundance plays American indies, many of which are as yet unsold, in the frigid clime of the Utah mountains; Toronto brings a veritable tidal wave of some 300 films, from obscure indie and international auteur to Hollywood prosaic; while New York hand-selects some 30-odd films from all over the world for its main slate.

Review: The Song

posted: 09/26/2014 2:09 a.m. Discuss

The Song is a major-key Christian movie with remarkably high production values and an interesting premise.

(For purposes of this discussion we'll leave aside modern theories about the actual authorship of the piece.)
