Michael Summers — More


Jazz

Louis Fowler
This honky cat is really something else! Need proof? Just take a listen to his swingin’ version of the Elton John classic. Deep bass grooves, jaunty piano, smooth trumpet and sexy, crystalline vocals: This is the version to which all others now must live up.

Suddenly

Shoot the president? Sinatra aims to do it his way.


Thriller

Rod Lott
From 1954, Suddenly is the lesser-known of Frank Sinatra’s two films centered on a presidential assassination. Cry “sacrilege” if you wish, but I actually prefer it to the later, more polished, highly revered The Manchurian Candidate. Yes, Suddenly is a B-noir treatment of the same theme, but the underdog proves ridiculously effective.

Grohl on

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl makes a music documentary, ‘Sound City.’

Dave Grohl’s not just a Foo Fighter. Now he’s a film director.

Sound City, his documentary on the historic L.A. recording studio of the same name, is set to screen locally once and once only: at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas 16, 150 E. Reno. It’s scheduled for nowhere else in the state.

Fresh from its Jan. 18 premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the film includes such music heavyweights as Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Barry Manilow, Pixies’ Frank Black, producer Rick Rubin, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, John Fogerty, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and many, many more.

The Bay

Terror tries to get ‘eek’-ological.


Horror

Rod Lott
What’s an Academy Award-winning director like Barry Levinson doing in a found-footage horror movie like The Bay? Trying to revive a Rain Man career, I’d assume, following 15 years of flops like Envy, Bandits and Man of the Year. Here's another.

One in Three

Oklahoma City’s Nathan Mickle makes up a third of the new vocal group The American Three, dedicated to belting out standards.


Music

Louis Fowler
Press materials for The American Three tag the new vocal group as “fun and wholesome,” with a little Rat Pack thrown in “just for flavor!” It’s that extra flavor that Three member and lifelong Ol’ Blue Eyes fan Nathan Mickle believes fits his song stylings to a T.

Grand Duel

To catch a Cleef.


Western

Rod Lott
Lee Van Cleef enjoyed a secondary career in Italy cranking out spaghetti Westerns, with little regard to quality. However, 1972’s Grand Duel — aka The Big Showdown — is deserving of its Grand label. No wonder Quentin Tarantino borrowed its sweeping theme song by Luis Bacalov for Kill Bill; you'll recognize it in two notes.
