Shaolin Soccer and Kungfu Hustle, well received both locally and abroad, paved the way for Stephen Chow to become an international comedy star. Indeed his profile in Hong Kong grew to astounding proportions during the early nineties. In Fight Back to School and its sequel, his representative films during that period, he plays a cop disguising as a high school kid to investigate hidden crimes, and in the course generates tons of jokes to amuse his fans! In Fight Back to School III he continued his role as an undercover, but this time, disguised as a rich man.

A good many memorable quotes from Stephen Chow indeed come from Fight Back to School I & II, both directed by the awarding-winning director Gordon Chan. Hong Kong Filmmaker Wong Jing, famous for creating hilarious comedies, not only writes the script for Fight Back to School but also directs Fight Back to School III. Stephen Chow's long collaborator Richard Ng Man Tat, of course, cannot be absent from the trilogy. Chow's romance with gorgeous actress Sharla Cheung enriches all three films. Fight Back to School III also stars the late super star Anita Mui as a rich man's wife while Chow pretends to be her husband. Now is the time to enjoy the jokes created by such a glamorous cast!

Sandy Dennison is a wise woman. On her debut CD, "Love You Madly," she sings 11 evergreens by Duke Ellington and his assorted collaborators. The choice of material is evidence of Dennison’s good taste, but she’s also smart enough to approach the songs in a straight-ahead, understated manner. Dennison knows that the songs are great, and she knows better than to mess with a good thing. "Love You Madly" arrives years after Dennison first started performing. She put her career on hold in the 1970s to raise a family and then a surgery left her unable to sing. She, however, still felt the desire to sing, and not long ago worked her way back to performing in clubs around Portland, Ore.

Duke Ellington recorded for Brunswick from 1926 to 1931, the period in which his great talent and great orchestra first flowered, whether the band was recording under his own name or such pseudonyms as the Washingtonians or the Jungle Band. The earliest recordings are highlighted by the presence of trumpeter Bubber Miley and trombonist "Tricky Sam" Nanton, whose brilliant work with plunger mutes for vocal effects did much to define the early sound–which, in turn, rapidly evolved and expanded with the additions of Harry Carney, Johnny Hodges, and Cootie Williams. While the band's repertoire included many blues and popular songs, its distinctive identity emerges from early renditions of such trademark pieces as "East St. Louis Toodle-O," "Black and Tan Fantasy," "The Mooche," and "Mood Indigo." By the end of the period covered in this set, Ellington's ambitious later suites–some of them CD-length–are portended in the elegant extended composition "Creole Rhapsody," his clearly superior contribution to the symphonic jazz movement.

Toward the end of his career, Duke Ellington found himself filling up his calendar when home in New York City with a residence at the famous Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Plaza. This afforded fans to hear a scaled-down version of his Big Band in the form of an Octet, plus occasional added vocalists. On this album we present a rare stereo recording of Duke's Rainbow Room Octet as they were captured playing a private party in New Jersey during the summer of 1968. This is one of only perhaps two issued live recordings of this rare instrumentation, featuring some of Ellington's great sidemen such as Johnny Hodges, Lawrence Brown, Paul Gonsalves…

From his 1940s work with Benny Goodman and Woody Herman until his death in 1985, tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims was the quintessential jazz musician. He always kept an enthusiastic commitment to improvising and a profound allegiance to the rhythmic art of swing. On this 1979 date he and a big band play distinctive Ellington orchestrations written by Benny Carter, who, like Ellington, helped architect the Swing Era. Here Sims's melodic and evocative tenor mingles the lightness of Lester Young with some of the richly grained sound of Ben Webster, and his performances of Billy Strayhorn's lush "Passion Flower" and Duke's "I've Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)" are especially moving. ~ Amazon
