Richard Barrios: Dangerous Rhythm

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 2:30pm

Movie musicals lead a “preposterous existence”. They are “crass, not respected, and several times almost extinct”. But they are also wildly popular and beloved. Movie musicals are wonderful, but musicals can also be trash! Tonight on Inquiry we talk with film historian RICHARD BARRIOS about his history of the movie musical DANGEROUS RHYTHM: WHY MOVIE MUSICALS MATTER. Tune in and find out why Cabaret worked but Paint Your Wagon failed miserably. 


The internationally acclaimed 20-piece Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra will present music by director Darrell Katz in a concert to celebrate the release of its new CD Why Do You Ride?

The centerpiece of the new disc is Wheelworks, an eight-movement suite consisting of settings of things that Albert Einstein did and did NOT say about the learning, knowledge, love and war, and exquisitely sung by the voice of the JCA, Rebecca Shrimpton, who, over the years, has proven to have such great skill at bringing musical ideas and text to life.
