Great set of jazz and classical musicians. I Had the great pleasure of hearing Sonny Rollins live at the Jazz Yatra in Bombay in 1978.An unforgettable experience!

Apart from the great Sonny Rollins Jazz Yatra had performers like Stan Getz,Clark Terry,Chico Freeman,Don Cherry,Mingus Dynasty,Don Ellis and lots of others.The first few Jazz Yatras-the first one being in 1978 were great with Willis Conover being there as a bonus!

Charlize is a free-spirited girl who is terminally-ill while Keanu is an ambitious lawyer who is captivated by Charlize's ways. The most memorable thing about the movie, though, was the song. I tried to ferret some information about the song yesterday, and its unknown singer.

There were 13. Now which one was I looking for?Visited Amazon and searched for Sweet November. Gotcha! The list of tracks, however, gave no information about …
