When LIFE photographer Robert W. Kelley shot a few  rolls of film at an intimate jazz gig on May 14, 1958, evidently neither  he nor the magazine’s editors were jumping out of their skins with  excitement…
Why the pictures — which capture the great, groundbreaking trumpeter,  then just 31 years old, leading his band in an unnamed New York venue —  never made it into print remains a mystery to this day.

Rediscovered The Thin Red Line by Terrence Malick, yesterday. I think it kind of got lost to the majority of audiences who received their realistic war film kick from Saving Private Ryan which came out around the same time. If you’re familiar with Terrence Malick’s work you know he does an incredible job of combining cinematography, music, and voice over dialogue to extract a deeply emotional and engaging experience from the audience. The soundtrack, composed by Hans Zimmer, features a choir from the Solomon Islands singing: God U Tekem Laef Blong Mi couldn’t be a more perfect addition to Malick’s scope. God U Tekem Laef Blong Mi has officially become my morning alarm. You can’t have a bad morning when you start it with this.
