New arrivals for the week of October 14, 2008


Hello Everyone,

Reelin' in the Years Productions has released two giant volumes of their Jazz Icons boxes so far with a third coming soon. Volume one came in last week (9 DVDs featuring Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Quincy Jones, Thelonious Monk, Buddy Rich, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, and Chet Baker) and we should have volume two later this week (8 more DVDs featuring John Coltrane, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Dexter Gordon, Wes Montgomery, and Charles Mingus). Look for volume three in a few more weeks (another 8 DVDs with Sonny Rollins, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Lionel Hampton, Oscar Peterson, and Nina Simone). That's a whole lotta Jazz! Check out their web-site for more info (www.jazzicons.com). Also, Michael Palin (no relation... I think) has released his latest: Hemingway Adventure/Great Railway Journeys. If it's anything like his other titles it's going to be great (and Amanda will wish she was still here). Lastly, the HBO documentary, "Hard Times at Douglass High: A No Child Left Behind Report Card", finally arrived last week -- "From cautionary profiles to triumphant tales, Hard Times at Douglass High serves as a reminder that education is inevitably an achievement of people, not policy."

Nina Paley's "Sita Sings the Blues" will be showing at the Chicago Film Festival on October 18th, 19th and 28th (all screenings are at the AMC River East 21). If you are in the neighborhood (or feel like a mini-roadtrip) you should check it out. All of us down here are keeping our fingers crossed that Roger Ebert will bring it here (along with Nina, of course) for this year's Ebertfest.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
