fine and mellow

Sobre la relación entre Billy y Lester hay mucho escrito, fácilmente encontrable. También sobre esta grabación de abajo. Pero nunca me la había encontrado tan bien hilvanada, tan fina y suavemente; fue en la que se ha convertido en mi serie favorita, una joya de tres capítulos que no describiré, no al menos ahora.
Lester se fue dos años después, en el 59, como ella.
El diálogo Johnny-Jill con el They come and go, don't they, Johnny? Not Lester, es inenarrable.

Worricker’s relationship with Nancy is one of the more intriguing parts of the movie to watch, given not only their age difference (Weisz is some 20 years younger, but looks even more so), but their undeniable chemistry. At first, he considers her interest in him to be so unusual that he wonders if she’s also a spy, but perhaps he’s being too modest. The Home Secretary’s assistant, Anna (Holly Aird) is revealed to be both a lover and a source, while a gallery owner (Marthe Keller) closes her eyes when he kisses her goodbye in a way that implies for her, the moment could last forever. But it’s Nancy whom Worricker seems most captivated by. “They come and go, don’t they Johnny,” says his prickly MI5 superior Jill (Judy Davis, in an Emmy-nominated role). “Not Lester,” Johnny replies,” referring to an earlier scene where he and Nancy watched videos of Billie Holiday and Lester Young, observing how desperately in love the singer was with the musician.

Her performance of "Fine and Mellow" on CBS's The Sound of Jazz program is memorable for her interplay with her long-time friend Lester Young. Both were less than two years from death. When Lester Young died in March 1959 Holiday wanted to sing at his funeral, but was refused.

Y respecto a los jugadores de cartas -The Card Players- de Christopher Wood y para qué valen los hombres a los que les gusta el jazz, aquí hay una fantástica e irónica reseña.
Fino, todo muy fino.
