|Jackie's Back A portrait of a Diva (1999)|
Jenifer Lewis, Timm Curry, T.V. Blake, Tangie Ambrose and Whoopie Goldberg
Soul diva Jackie Washington is determined to hit the comeback trail but seems to be having trouble finding the on-ramp in the mock-documentary comedy Jackie's Back. Jackie (played by Jenifer Lewis) was a Rhythm and Blues singer who had a few late '60's and early 70's hits, including "Yield" and the memorable "Look At Me (My Love For You Has Only Made Me Love Me More)," but she's spent much of the 80's and 90's playing the "Where Are They Now?" circuit. However, Jackie has organized what she hopes will be a gala comeback concert, and filmmaker Edward Whatsett St. John (Tim Curry) is on hand to film the event, and discusses the high and (frequent) low points of Jackie's career with such friends and well-wishers as Bette Midler, Liza Minnelli, Penny Marshall, Jackie Collins and Dolomite himself, Rudy Ray Moore. Meanwhile, Jackie's big gig is not going quite the way she planned.
Taylor makes a cameo appearance as herself…
|Searching for Jimi Hendrix (1999)|
|Searching For Jimi Hendrix chronicles a journey into the creative souls of contemporary musicians to discover the dpth and breadth of that vision in today’s music. Two years in the making, the album took shape in recording studios from London to Hollywood toNew York from a front porch to a living room to a church, from a Hollywood rehearsal space to a Manhattan loft to a European jazz festival. Interpreting his music in their own unique and intimate ways, on songs they chose themselves, Hendrix is found in the rap of Chuck D. (of Public Enemy), the rock of Los Lobos, the blues of Charlie Musselwhite, the modern country of Rosanne Cash, the jazz of Cassandra Wilson and film composer Mark Isham, the ska of Neville and Sheena Staples (of The Specials), the electronic experimentalism of Laurie Anderson, the funky pop of Taylor Dayne, the Latino rock of Los Illegals and the gospel of the Five Blind Boys Of Alabama.
As rediscovered by these artists, Hendrix is sometimes raucous, loud and crazy, and other times warm, tender and thoughtful. Always, he is filled with emotion… and continues to live on through his songs.
This film illustrates Jimi’s influence on performers from all genres of music and celebrates his talent as a composer. The Spirit of Jimi Hendrix is everywhere - in the fingers of every rock guitarist, in the heart of the generation that grew up in the Sixties. Yet Hendrix was more than a legendary musician or a cultural icon. He was also a truly great American songwriter, a composer of modern classics.
