Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden: Last Dance
The new album Last Dance brings together the extraordinary musicians Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden for an amazing musical conversation after years on hiatus. Their 2010 hit album Jasmine was a phenomenal success, and the studio recording session with Keith Jarrett, who spearheaded the project, was so creative and productive that it was a natural choice to follow it up with a sequel. And so Last Dance, which brings us even more music from this session, came to be. This new selection of classic works, performed masterfully by the duo, includes “Round Midnight” by Thelonious Monk and “Dance of the Infidels” by Bud Powell. Last Dance is a fresh testament to the artistry of Jarrett and Haden, a true ‘last dance’ between two old partners, and is set to be one of this year’s hits.
Spotless: the new Création Originale Canal+
Principal photography of Spotless will begin on July 2 in London for five months. This new drama series created by the Canal+ Original Programming label, is produced by Tandem Communication, a Studiocanal subsidiary in association with Rosetta Media. Jonas Bauer, Executive VP of Tandem Partner and executive producer in charge of the production said “We’re very excited to be producing our first series for the prestigious Canal+ Original Programming label and to have the platform to expand our narrative into the Premium Television arena”. Fabrice de la Patellière, Director of French Drama and Co-Productions for Canal+ said to be “delighted to begin production of Spotless, featuring talented lead actors Marc-André Grondin and Denis Ménochet, who are great matches for the show’s originality and dark humor. We love Pascal Chaumeil’s work and are excited that he will be directing the first two episodes, starting the series off in a quirky, off-beat style. The channel is taking a thrilling gamble by introducing a new genre to its original programming.” A sexy, one-hour crime drama peppered with black humor and set in London, Spotless is the story of a troubled man, ‘Jean,’ whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother, ‘Martin,’ crash lands into his world, entangling them in the deadly dynamics of organized crime. Played out against a backdrop of ‘Jean’s’ niche Crime Scene Cleaning business, with gangsters, corruption, drugs and death a constant hazard, ‘Jean,’ ‘Martin’ and their dysfunctional family struggle to gain control over life, business and their shared destiny. Spotless is irreverent, dark, funny, sexy and dangerous.
