Be About You - 'Be About You' is up and coming new band Winston Surfshirt's debut music video. It features the five-piece band and their trusty dog 'Pop'. 


I Go Back Home JImmy Scott - I Go Back Home _ÑÐ Jimmy Scott tells the story of jazz legend Jimmy Scott and disillusioned producer and composer Ralf Kemper who took on the journey to produce an album with the almost-forgotten icon.Jimmy Scott, friend of Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker and one of the last connections to the golden age of jazz, was described as _ÑÒperhaps the most unjustly ignored American singer of the 20th century,_ѝ by the New York Times. Personally discontented, Kemper becomes obsessed with the idea of bringing attention to his hero, but it takes a tragedy to put his thoughts into action.
By the time Kemper and Scott meet, Scott is 85 years-old and living in obscurity in Las Vegas. Reliant on his wife and reliant on a wheelchair, Kemper is shocked by Jimmy_Ñés surprisingly bad health condition which puts his dream at risk before it even begins. While Ralf_Ñés problems grow, Jimmy_Ñés bloom more and more. 
Ralf gathers some of the most important jazz musicians in the studio in tribute for Scott. Together with many of Scott_Ñés old friends like Quincy Jones, Joe Pesci and James Moody, Kemper pursues his dream. He can_Ñét give up. He spares no expense and reaches the limits of what can be done to capture Jimmy_Ñés unique voice in a race against time.
