“Classic Paranoid Cinema Mondays”


Mirage (1965)

Gregory Peck, Diane Baker and Walter Matthau star in Mirage, a psychological thriller where danger, deception and even murder lurk around every corner. Bewildered accountant David Stillwell (Peck) believes he must be suffering from some form of amnesia and enlists the help of a private detective (Matthau) to help determine his identity. Linked to the death of a wealthy philanthropist, experiencing flashbacks of a disturbing past and perplexed by the woman (Baker) in his life, Stillwell struggles to make sense of his perilous situation. Filmed on location in alluring New York City, Mirage is an edge-of-your-seat suspense film that remains one of the genre’s most timeless classics.

Dave Maxwell & The Shapeshifters

Dave Maxwell – piano / Bruno Raberg – bass / Lawrence Cook – drums / Jim Hobbs – alto sax

Maxwell, best known in the Blues world, has always had an alter ego in the world of jazz and free improvisation. His childhood dream was to become a modern classical composer of arresting originality. Well, that never worked out, and the blues grabbed him by the throat; around the same time he was into Cecil Taylor and Monk. He has endeavored to funnel that dream through an exploration of kaleidoscopically shifting textures, densities and colors informed by abstract contemporary jazz (with and without a driving pulse), musical influences from India to Iran, the use of space (think Morton Feldman and other contemporary composers) and an underlying grease born out of the blues. Jim Hobbs, Bruno Raberg and Lawrence Cook are willing partners, adding dimension and depth. This music is emotional, visceral and perhaps even healing in one way or another.
