Cinema On Campus Lancelot du Lac Robert Bresson may be one of the greatest of living directors he is certainly one of the most highly praised but his austere, beautiful films have not been widely distributed. In this film, he deals with the end of the Age of Chivalry; one critic calls it "something perfectly crafted, unalterable, rare." (Alternative Cinema.

Shows at 3:24, 6:35 and 9:50 p.m. eFaiVSi by Dave Robinson DTH Contributor It could have been Harlem's Cotton Club, 1935 almost. Instead it was Chapel Hill's Memorial Hall, 1975. And though the mild-mannered Duke was absent Tuesday night, his famed orchestra now led by son and former trumpet section member Mercer recalled some of the music that made the world proclaim, "We love you madly." But unlike Duke's Cotton Club days (where he opened in December 1927), Tuesday's crowd was young and predominantly white. White folk in Ellington's early days just didn't listen to that primitive Negro "jungle stuff; such music was sold only as "race records" to a black audience. But these young Chapel Hillians had come to hear the oldies and so they did. Mercer uses the band which he inherited from his late father as a showcase for the old and the new in big band jazz. The instrumentation is the same as it was in the 30's, with the addition of a fifth sax man. Conspicuous changes include the use of soprano sax and flugelhorns, and the electrification of the guitar (played by Mercer's son, Edward Ellington II). Old Ellington favorites included "Take the A Train," "Satin Doll," "Black and Tan Fantasy," "Sophisticated Lady," and "Mood Indigo." It was refreshing to hear a modern big band capture so well the sound of its forerunners. Duke was known for his top-quality sidemen and the longevity of his orchestras. The present-day band members show respect for the band's heritage, at times paying apparent tribute to their predecessors: one could sometimes imagine that Art Baron's plungered trombone was that of Tricky Sam Nanton, the growling trumpet of lead man Willie Singleton belonged to Bubber Miley, and the warm breathy tenor in "All Too Soon" was not some young'un named Ricky Ford, but Ben Webster himself. Still, jazz has gone places since the big band era and the Ellington ensemble has kept pace with the times. A good deal of modal, dizzying and distinctly modern improvisation was played, most notably by Ricky Ford and flugelhornist Barry Hall. Modern big-band arrangements were offered took including the rolicking, brassy "Jump for Joy." Crowd response reached a zenith in several spots, once following a Dixieland rendition of "Saints" which closed out'the concert's first half. Lloyd Mayers' piano work displayed a combination of the Duke's light touch, then a style reminiscent of Erroll Garner and finally ended with a succession of frantic pounding chords. Sandwiched in between was a demonstration of everything the double-bass can do and then some by J. J. Wiggins. Energetic tom-tom work by Rocky White during "Caravan" sent slivers of drumstick flying like sparks across the stage. Rounding out the performance was a number of slow ballads, often featuring the tender alto of Harold Minerve, and a few vocal renditions by Anita Moore (who braved a notably deficient mike). Mercer, who is a showman in his own right, bears a remarkable resemblance in both appearance and manner to his father. Stepping slightly to the music, quietly offering an occasional joke, vocally encouraging the soloists and even "bumping" with Anita, his smile, like his father's, never faded. rTZLX at m 2 A STUDENT RUN COMPANY! sraNTon PHONO S37.75 Reg. 82.50 CARTRIDGE 681EEE PRO4AA HEAD CV.
