Jazz on Film: Jazz Thespians in "All Night Long" (1962)

Aug 6, 2015

Wealthy entrepreneur and jazz fan Rodney Hamilton, steps into his swank warehouse in London. He is preparing a big surprise party to celebrate the one-year anniversary of African American pianist/bandleader Rex and his British white singer-bride Delilah who recently retired to be his full-time wife. You know the jazz is going to be plentiful when Rodney finds real-life Charles Mingus alone on the bandstand rehearsing.

Every month, Carolyn Joy of Joy Wine & Spirits shares a divine wine and food pairing with our listeners. 

For a delicious wine pairing for summer grilling - spicy charred steaks, grilled portobello mushrooms, blackened tuna, Cajun spices or hard cheddar cheese - try a slightly cooled glass of Southern Right Pinotage. 

If you've ever been on the fence about liking Pinotage or even South African red wine, the 2013 Southern Right Pinotage just might push you to become a fan.
