New York, NY, July, 2011 - On the occasion of what would have been Judy Garland’s 89th birthday, the Film Society of Lincoln Center and The Paley Center have announced the details today for FSLC’s comprehensive retrospective of the peerless film icon’s work, All Singin’, All Dancin’, All JUDY! which will screen at the Walter Reade Theater July 26 – August 9 and The Paley Center’s comprehensive retrospective of Garland’s television work, JUDY GARLAND: THE TELEVISION YEARS which will be presented July 20 – August 18.

All but two films will be presented in 35mm, with the two exceptions (THE WIZARD OF OZ and A STAR IS BORN) presented in stunning 4k digital restorations.

How can you not love Judy?



All Singin’, All Dancin’, All JUDY! will mark the first-ever United States celebration of Judy Garland’s movies to be presented by an arts organization of this kind as well as being the most complete and comprehensive retrospective of her films since the London National Film Theatre’s program 40 years ago in 1971.  

The program will be coordinated with and produced in association with The Paley Center, which will present the first comprehensive retrospective of Judy Garland’s television work called JUDY GARLAND: THE TELEVISION YEARS from July 20 – August 18. In addition to highlights from The Judy Garland Show, which allowed her to share the spotlight with such entertainers as Mickey Rooney, Barbra Streisand, Ethel Merman, and Peggy Lee, the screening series will include rarely shown guest spots Garland did on such programs as The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show, The Sammy Davis Jr. Show, On Broadway Tonight, and The Jack Paar Program.

Highlights of the films being screened at the Walter Reade Theater (165 West 65th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway) will include; a sing-along screening (co-presented with NewFest) of THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939); screenings of the Andy Hardy classics that teamed Garland with Mickey Rooney (LOVE FINDS ANDY HARDY (1938), ANDY HARDY MEETS DEBUTANTE (1940) and LIFE BEGINS FOR ANDY HARDY (1941)); classic and beloved musicals (MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (1944) and EASTER PARADE (1948)); and her Academy Award nominated performances in A STAR IS BORN (1954) and JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG (1961).

Another highlight will be a presentation of short films and rarities hosted by noted Judy Garland and THE WIZARD OF OZ authority, historian and author, John Fricke on Friday, July 29 at 7:30PM. An Emmy winner and Grammy nominee for his work on various Garland-based documentaries and recordings, Fricke will be on hand throughout the retrospective to discuss and add insight into the film legend’s career. He is an author of several books on the subject of Garland, THE WIZARD OF OZ and L. Frank Baum (the author of The Wizard of Oz), and will be signing copies of his latest book published by Running Press, JUDY: A Legendary Film Career on Friday, August 5 at the Walter Reade.

FSLC Program Director Richard Pena said, “The idea for this series occurred to us when we were presenting the restoration of THE WIZARD OF OZ at the NYFF in 2009. In discovering the amazing number of web sites, festivals and fan clubs still devoted to Judy Garland, it was clear that she is still very much alive and part of our culture. Working with John Fricke, we have been able to assemble an unprecedented panorama of her work. We’re delighted to give Judy Garland fans and New York film goers an opportunity to see one of the truly magical screen icons up on the big screen, where she belongs.”

Jazzy Pop: Shihori - Soul Trip (Independent / 4 September 2020)

Jazzy Pop:
Shihori - Soul Trip
(Independent / 4 September 2020)New York City based singer and songwriter Shihori's new single Soul Trip is atmospheric and ambient. Interesting rhythms and interwoven melodic vocal lines showcase jazzy harmonic progressions in a slow groove mode. 
As a songwriter, she uses electronic effects with impeccable musical taste. As a singer, her flexible vocals range from a sweet soprano to a strong mid-range.A veteran of the Japanese pop scene, Shihori moved to New York City in 2018, a move she talks about in a media release."I was so surprised when I came to NY for the first time. Independent and strong women are respected and there are lots of different preferences in music and style. I thought, 'oh my God! This place really accepts uniqueness and freedom! I didn't know there is a place like this totally different world that allows you to be yourself. Everybody looks so different. So many races, colors, cultures, fashion, ideas...I am so happy…

Psychedelic Punk Rock
Lord Sonny the Unifier: (All My Friends Live) Underground
(Independent / 25 September 2020)Stream it on SpotifyLayers of rhythm and percussive piano characterize this earworm track from Brooklyn's Lord Sonny the Unifier. With spooky harmonies and guitar that is all distortion with a psychedelic vibe, it's a compelling single for the time. Sonny builds the track with an almost orchestral sensibility to a big sound finish.
Greg Jiritano, the main impetus behind Lord Sonny, talked about the song in a media release."(All My Friends Live) Underground is a song about iconoclasts and outsiders who find their group of freaks, or Tribe in the shadows and underbelly, outside the conventions of  society. It's a calling to join us and leave behind  what society has embraced as the norms and the acceptable, the well trod path above. Leave the trivialities being thrust upon us since birth and join our Tribe and rediscover there the truths that will enrich you and…

Alt Country
Doc Straw & the Scarecrows: Get on By
(Independent / July 31, 2020)Stream it on SpotifyClever lyrics that tell a story and an appealing acoustic bounce give the new single by Doc Straw & the Scarecrows a classic modern folk vibe. The vocal harmonies are pleasing and the words are an upbeat ode to persevering during tough times.
It's a timely message, and Doc talked about it in a release."I wrote this song after getting off of a 3-hour long phone conversation with my sister, Jessica, and a lot of our conversation that evening  centered around some of the tougher things in life and how we were dealing with these struggles. If a person lives long enough then at some point they will experience these trying seasons. I've learned that it's important to pay attention during those times because that is when we have some of the best opportunities to grow."It has a nicely haunting harmonica line and builds to an emotional peak. Virginia based Mike Straw is…

Recently Released | The smallest Creature: Magic Beans (Independent / 30 September 2020)

Recently Released
The smallest Creature: Magic Beans
(Independent / 30 September 2020)Stream it on SpotifyWith influences from The Beatles to Alice in Chains, The smallest Creature's Magic Beans is an album of alt-rock with an intimate, almost alt-folk feel to it. The lyrics are poetic and integral to the song, lit up with tight chops and accomplished musicality.
Would You Blink has a nice sense of urgency and a driving rhythm, contrasted by October Song, something of an old blues song with a 21st century rock makeover. Their grunge influences come to the fore in Glow, with Let Burn another guitar-heavy rocker. The band goes softer in Break Me, an acoustic song that spotlights Stefanos Marnerides' soft tenor. The smallest Creature hail from Larnaca in Cyprus in the sunny Mediterranean. The smallest Creature is the brainchild of Stefanos Marnerides, with the name starting off as an alias in NYC where Stefanos was performing solo gigs and recording demos. When later Stefanos moved …
