Music is a mystery for people who play it, write it, listen to it, and write about it. The only thing I can really do when I try to say something about music is assume.

Frank Sinatra Sings Mozart!
It Happened in Brooklyn is a surreal movie, but when I saw this I really thought I was dreaming. The movie is loaded with Jimmy Durante brilliance as well, and much, much more music. It's a "must see" for musicians.
I am active as a composer, a violist, a violinist, a recorder player, and as a teacher. I began my professional musical life as a flutist, and spent a lot of quality time as a baroque flutist, but I no longer have my baroque flute. Now my modern flute spends most of its time tucked away in a drawer, while my violin, viola, and my viola d'amore are often tucked under my chin.
