Paquito D'Rivera, Gato Barbieri
Directed by Fernando Trueba
Calle 54, a glorious Latin jazz documentary from Oscar-winning Spanish director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque), stands with Wim Wenders' The Buena Vista Social Club as a landmark musical tribute. Whether it's the late Tito Puente on timbales, Gato Barbieri on tenor sax, a barefoot Eliane Elias on piano or Jerry Gonz lez on fluegelhorn and congas, the sound is pure, resonant and transporting. Sexy, too. This is one summer movie with real sizzle.
