  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Jazz Baroness

    Baroness Nica Rothschild and Be-bop legend Thelonious Monk had a beautiful relationship but she was also one of those nutty "cat ladies". I don't know how many cats she had but it was enough to be a financial drain, even on a Rothschild (food, medical, etc.). Monk "didn't dig the cats" and went insane. Who wouldn't with all those cats everywhere.
