Film Music Friday - April 2, 2021 (Jazz in Film)

This week's Film Music Friday explores the use of jazz in the movies. Several factors, including the demise of the big band era, rising costs and the emergence of film noir led to increasing use of jazz in film scoring in the 1950's. We'll hear some examples, including music from A Streetcar Named Desire, The Man with the Golden Arm, The Wild One, Anatomy of a Murder, Bullitt and Whiplash.
