Jimmy Smith documentary (1965)
A wonderful documentary about a majestic man who is ahead of his time. The cinematography was simple and the opening scene is already smooth and bad ass on its own.

Tromba Fredda, a short-film dir. by Enzo Nasso and starring Chet Baker

Swing of Change (2011)
An animated short-film about a racist barber and a black trumpeter in the 1930s, and shows how much music can make a difference.

Moonlight Serenade – James Stewart (The Glenn Miller Story)
Probably the most essential jazz track of the 1940s.

My Funny Valentine – Matt Damon & Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley)

When I Fall in Love – Alec Newman & Amy Adams (Moonlight Serenade)
The best, most romantic and unpredictable movie scene duet i’ve ever seen.

Beyond the Sea – Kevin Spacey (Beyond the Sea)

Please Be Kind – Mildred Bailey
Los Altos, a short-film starring Annie Monroe and her photographer boyfriend, James Kelly

Alone Together, an animated short-film dir. Marc Esteban, Jordi Matosas & Oriol Rello, inspired by the song “Alone Together” composed by Arthur Schwarzs and performed by Chet Baker.

Une vie de Chat Soundtrack
Perfect for a night of espionage (or literature and bourbon at dawn).

Of course.
