Duke Ellington In Hollywood is a wonderfully entertaining and nostalgic collection of scenes from Ellington's movie appearances, loaded with equal parts stellar playing and amusingly bad acting from just about all concerned. Beginning with The Duke's first film appearance, 1929's Black and Tan, Ellington's acting limitations are masked by the louder bad acting of others, like the over-the-top performance from dancer Fredi Washington, whose death scene just dragged on and on.

One of the most beloved vocalists of the past century, Dinah Washington (1924-1963) was justly celebrated for her very personal singing style that was at home in all types of music, be it blues, jazz, R&B or pop. In this respect, she was gifted with an unmistakable salty, high-pitched voice that was perfect for her complete clarity of fiction and her phrasing with strong roots in the blues. An artist who led a very turbulent personal life, Dinah Washington was known for her no-nonsense, unsentimental, yet always moving renditions centred on the universal subject of lost love.

The great John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie (1917-1993) was more than just one of the best jazz trumpeters of all time. A superlative musician of dazzling, astonishing technique, Gillespie was one of the key founders of the BeBop movement of the forties, to the point that his goatee, beret and "bop glasses" came to epitomize the new, revolutionary style. One of the masters of the Bop idiom, Gillespie also was the first jazzman to seriously experiment with Afro-Cuban rhythms, the leader of two of the most exciting big bands in history, a composer of note, a masterful showman onstage, and an enthusiastic, quick-witted personality off it. In many respects, Diz - as he was universally known - showed the way to every post-war trumpeter in the jazz field.

Life Goes On is the 2008 album by Hawaiian Jawaiian group Hawaiian Time. The phrase "Hawaiian time" is a pidgin English term for arriving or doing something later than the established norm, to be lazy or laid back. You may say their music has a nice laid back reggae vibe to it, island style.
