Keep On Keeping On

"Keep on Keeping On" is a really good movie, and would be more inspiring if Quincy Jones hadn't helped produce the movie and, coincidentally, hadn't signed up one of the two musicians for a world tour on Quincy's label. Ya know.

It's a little puff piecey -- but trumpeter Clark Terry and his wife are so real that it makes you pass over the rest of it. The featured pianist, Justin Kauflin, is just not as superb as they make him out to be. He's young, he'll certainly get there, but not if he watches this movie too many times.
