The Digest: ENDLESS SUMMER:

ENDLESS SUMMER:​​​​​​​

Brian Wilson was right when he said that summer means happy times and good sunshine. It's that simple, really. Here are some things to watch, read, and listen to over this beautiful summer weekend. May it be endless.

 


AMERICAN GRAFFITI (1973)

This film is peak nostalgia, centered around a group of high-school grads on the last night of youthful innocence. It's their last chance to shirk the inevitable responsibilities of adulthood as they tear up the strip in classic Hot Rods. Though the story permeates generations, it's steeped in the American teen experience of the 1960's. Directed by George Lucas, produced by Francis Ford Coppola, and filled with a cast of heavy-hitters, this is a summer classic.

RELAXIN' WITH THE MILES DAVIS QUINTET (1958)

This album was made for weekends like this. Released as 1 of 4 albums in 1958, Relaxin' is considered a cornerstone of hard bop, and arguably the greatest jazz band ever formed. Lead by Miles Davis (trumpet), this particular lineup featured Coltrane (sax), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (bass), and Philly Joe Jones (drums). As the title aptly suggests - turn on, tune in, and relax with the Miles Davis Quintet.
