    Death of Jazz Club Underscores a Changing Scene

    Death of Jazz Club Underscores a Changing Scenenytimes.com writes,

    As another holiday season under a stagnating economy draws to a close, it is hardly surprising that San Francisco would lose that rarely profitable of ventures, a jazz room.

    But Coda, a bar, restaurant and club in the Mission District, did not seem like it was going under. In just a year and a half, it had established itself as one of the most interesting jazz-based schedules in the Bay Area. Acts like the Jazz Mafia tapped into a vibrant younger music scene, and salsa Sunday bookings and Latin jazz nights sold out. Stevie Wonder dropped by for a set; Liz Phair covered Velvet Underground songs.

    Miles Davis 2011: A Look Ahead

    Imagefrom milesdavisonline.com

    Miles Davis Biopic: With a possible release date (according to IMDB) sitting comfortably on the 2013 calendar, it’s no surprise news is fleeting. It didn’t stop me from starting a blog about it in 2008! Boy was I early to the party.

    Nevertheless, 2010 closed with an unexpected bang of news about the slow-moving biopic. The Hollywood Reporter’s Shirley Halperin caught up with Don Cheadle who said the script was complete and now they are on the hunt for investor money.

    Most importantly, we now have some concrete hope that the project is moving ahead.

    But 2011 is expected to be low-key, unless a studio jumps in to pay the tab and a start date is confirmed. Maybe an actor or two sign on, but I’m not hopeful for much action. A script leak would be welcome!

    With Cheadle’s busy workload it’s tough to see where the biopic fits in – in the short-term. The Miles Davis Biopic isn’t even listed on his credits, which is strange.

    We assume Cheadle is still going to direct the movie as well as play the lead role of the jazz legend. I’ve wondered if Cheadle should not direct and just focus on playing Miles Davis. But I’m on record in my confidence with Cheadle as star and director of the Miles Movie.
