Featuring "Hummingbird" and "Summer Breeze"
Summer Breeze offered an unusually ambitious array of music within a soft rock context – most artists tried to avoid weighty subjects in such surroundings (except, of course, CSN or Simon & Garfunkel, who could pretty much get away with anything). The title track is one of those relentlessly appealing 1970s harmony-rock anthems, in the same mode as the Doobie Brothers' "Listen to the Music" and appropriately ubiquitous on the radio and in the memory; the guitar (electric and acoustic) and vocal hooks are all well-nigh irresistible. The rest varies in sound and focus.
Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. When the Marsalis Brothers left The Jazz Messengers in early 1982, Wynton suggested that Art Blakey take a close listen to trumpeter Terence Blanchard (then 19) and 21-year old altoist Donald Harrison. The drummer took his advice, and after also adding young pianist Johnny O'Neal, Blakey soon had an exciting new version of The Jazz Messengers.
Eric Kot Man Fai’s directorial debut tells two tales of first love, before and after. In the first, Takeshi Kaneshiro (Chungking Express) stars as a garbageman who falls in love with a sleepwalking young woman (Lee Wai-Wai). The second is about a convenience store owner (Eric Kot Man Fai) who is troubled by the return of an old lover whom he jilted years before. Semi-experimental in approach, the film explores similar themes to Wong's highly visual romantic style whilst also showcasing the director’s unique voice and creativity.
