Too bad they're not actually playing what the soundtrack is.

Yes they’re lip-synching to a pre-recorded track but it is Nino playing the horn.

The recording is excellent - fabulous playing. But seeing as they are merely acting in the clip diminishes my excitement immediately.

Nino's a fantastic player..He fooled me first time I heard him on record..For a NY minute I thought it was Getz (until he played a lick Stan never played). My ears perked after that, he has many good YouTube vids. He is the real deal.

The sound is the result of his white plastic mouthpiece, proving once again that a $7 mouthpiece from the back of the junk drawer is superior to a metal STM. White plastic is also less likely to break all of your front teeth should you need to go acrobatic during a solo.

It's quite rare to see performers actually playing in any movie. The only exceptions I know of is one number in Funny Girl. The other is the recent Les Miserables. That includes some features of big bands.

Another example is in the Antonio Banderas feature "Two Much".

The movie itself is a very cheesy rom-com, but the last scene features a full 5-minute (or so) sequence of Michel Camilo's band playing his tune "Caribe".
The band itself is outstanding and, alongside Camilo, features Paquito D'Rivera, Horatio Hernandez, and a bunch of other heavy hitters.

I saw it in the theater in 1996 as a matinee on a weekend where it was the only movie showing in the post theater. That clip alone was worth the price of admission.

I forget that we now live in the YouTube era. Here's the clip from that last scene:


Just incredible!

Excellent!

I might have to watch the entire movie, maybe. James Genus, Lew Soloff, Gary Smulyan, are just a few credited, plus Paquito etc. Cachao has his fingers taped!

That clip of Nino made my day..just a great scene synch'd or not. No way to get good audio without a dub anyway. Where do we see the whole film ?
