The Original Sound Track performances...a brilliant cavalcade of jazz woven about the dramatic life story of "Red" Nichols
ibid: A musical biopic of jazzman Loring "Red" Nichols, as the famed Dixieland cornetist,
features a healthy dose of melodrama along with the melodies.
He runs into opposition to his sound, but breaks through to success. He marries a warm and patient woman (Bel Geddes) and even finds time to raise a family.
Then tragedy strikes when their daughter contracts polio. The jazzman puts down his horn to stand by her. Among the musical cameos is a hot turn
(THE FIVE PENNIES SAINTS) by Armstrong in a duet with Kaye.
