Reviews
Mine: Great musical score. Top-notch job by Denzel. Love the overall feel of the movie. A bit forced.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Backstage look at a self-centered jazz trumpeter who manages to keep everyone at arm's length--including the two ladies in his life. Colorful, musically alive, with some good vignettes from members of Lee's stock company, but it goes on forever--with barely enough story to keep it afloat. Branford Marsalis' Quartet with Terence Blanchard is featured on the soundtrack; music score by Bill Lee (Spike's father).
