Everything Old is New Again
In the last few weeks, there have been some notable performances that have received a great deal of media attention. But like any great artist, they stand on the shoulders of those who came before.
One on the hot new stars of music is Billy Eilish. Much has been made of her recent performance on Saturday Night Live. Very cool, indeed!
Next up: The big movie over last weekend was Joker. Much has been made of Joaquin Phoenix's performance, including his dancing.
I appreciate that these stars openly acknowledge the root of their inspiration. There is so much great material from the swing era! Hopefully this peaks the interest of others to seek out of these kinds of classic clips.
