The story recounts the life of a Sicilian young named Ettore, fascinated by the music. Besides, he wants to be writer.
Except for founding leader/guitarist Kim Simmonds, this long-lived band's 2003 lineup bears no resemblance to the original British group formed in 1966. Still, Savoy Brown deserves credit simply for recording a respectable, even high-quality blues album over 35 years into its existence. Hot off a terrific solo acoustic release, 2001's Blues Like Midnight, a reinvigorated Simmonds signed with high-profile indie Blind Pig and churned out a classy set of smooth yet compelling electric blues. Not as soul-based as in the past, strains of funk ("(Hard Time) Believing in You"), R&B ("Can't Take It With You"), and rock ("When It Rains") help push the group beyond its lackluster and obscure efforts from the past decade. Savoy Brown was least successful when its muscular, amped-up boogie was forced and stilted; yet here the sound is warm and organic.

Stephen Poliakoff's BBC drama telling the story of Prince John, the autistic and epileptic son of Queen Mary and King George V who spent his whole life hidden away from public view. Covering the period leading up to and including the First World War, the programme bears witness to many major historic events through the eyes of the young prince, and dramatises such important royal occasions as Edward VII's funeral and the visitation of the nine Kings of Europe in 1910. Stars Tom Hollander and Miranda Richardson as the King and Queen, Gina McKee as the prince's nanny, and Michael Gambon as Edward VII.
Stan Getz with his sax, accompanied by Kenny Barron (piano), George Mraz (bass) and Victor Lewis (drums) recorded these jazz sessions in March 1989 (two years before his death), in Hollywood, for the label A & M of his friend Herb Alpert. But Alpert was more interested then launching another orchestral production by Getz, 'Apasionado', and left in the drawer that work. Over the years Alpert rediscovered the 'lost sessions', dedicated to bossas and ballads, and resolved to publish in 2003. Getz played his best music in the last years of his life and in this album plays with an unusual force and sweetness.
