Sorry for the short notice but today, Sunday, September 9, at 12 noon, eastern standard time, Turner Classic Movies will be showing the 1956 musical High Society with Pops, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly. It's one of my favorite Armstrong movie roles and it contains some great work with Bing (dig those obbligatos on "I Love You Samantha" and "Little ONe"). Also, the entire 1956 All Stars appear, except Velma, tough Armstrong and Joe Glaser did try hard to have her written in, but to avail (a story for another time). Otherwise, I apologize for the lack of a new entry this week, but I have a new one already halfway finished and I should definitely pick up the pace again this week. But for now, enjoy the film!
