Paramount Pictures bought the rights to make it into a feature film, but, in doing so, took many liberties with the facts and eventually re-named it "The Five Pennies. Actor-comedian Danny Kaye did an acceptable job as Nichols. At least they had Nichols himself perform all the cornet solos for the soundtrack. On May 27, , Nichols and his group opened an engagement at the newly-opened Top of the Mint lounge in Las Vegas, but, barely over a month later, he was stricken by a heart attack at Blair House, a plush motel where he was staying.
Which goes to show that a few "Nichols" here and a few "pennies" there really added up to a lot! Dave Dexter, Jr. Most of his solos were based on the single-stroke roll but he added a visual component which was novel as well as exciting.
The CD conveys some of that dynamism, although you really need to buy the DVD to get the full impact. There is also a brief jam session on Indiana which includes short solos from Benny Carter and Jess Stacy. From the jazz enthusiasts point of view, the Krupa soundtrack is superior to the Five Pennies one, but this is a well-packed CD lasting 70 minutes. Add to cart. Add to wishlist.
