Pete Postlethwaite - A Tribute

A tribute to Pete Postlethwaite.

The playlist: jazz – Miles Davis, Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula and more - The Guardian (blog)

Julia Hulsmann, Theo Bleckmann and Kurt Weill – Beat. Writing about Kurt Weill in that 20th-century music bible The Rest Is Noise, the New Yorker critic Alex Ross invoked a 1928 Weill essay called On the Gestic Character of Music – a reference to musical gestures, in which the audience’s attention is... That tension has fascinated Weill interpreters from his own day to now – artists all the way from Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald or Lotte Lenya, to Tom Waits, Marianne Faithfull and John Zorn. Two German contemporary musicians, the jazz pianist Julia Hulsmann and the cross-genre singer Theo Bleckmann, give Weill’s songs (famous and not-so-famous) a grippingly unfamiliar, slow-turning spin on the new ECM Records release A Clear Midnight... Listen to the Weill tune for the Walt Whitman poem Beat Beat Drum below. Miles Davis in the 80s The music of Miles Davis is rarely off the radar of jazz listeners and players. We all keep coming back to the dark magus of jazz, not just because of his beautiful sound and uncanny timing, but because of his conviction that a collaborative music cooked up in the moment can produce results that last for ever. That’s why the final decade of Miles’s life – the 1980s, when he seemed to be urgently in search of the tipping point between creative music and popular success – still sparks controversy. Time didn’t permit the inclusion of one of my favourite Miles tracks from that era – guitarist John Scofield’s compulsively climbing, harmonically devious composition You’re Under Arrest, from the 1985 album of the same name that also included... It’s always foxed me why You’re Under Arrest never became a jazz-fusion standard. Cutting Rachmaninov down to size Almost every time I’ve turned on the car radio in the past couple of weeks a Rachmaninov piano concerto seems to have been playing, and I’ve caught myself humming those smoochy melodies all over the place.

    After training as a teacher, Pete Postlethwaite started his acting career at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre where his colleagues included Bill Nighy, Jonathan Pryce, Antony Sher and Julie Walters. After routine early appearances in small parts for television programmes such as THE PROFESSIONALS, Postlethwaite's first success came with the acclaimed British film DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES in 1988. He then received an Academy Award nomination for his role in THE NAME OF THE FATHER in 1993. His performance as the mysterious lawyer "Kobayashi" in THE USUAL SUSPECTS is well-known, and he appeared in many successful films including ALIEN 3, BRASSED OFF, THE SHIPPING NEWS, THE CONSTANT GARDENER, as Friar Lawrence in Baz Luhrmann's ROMEO + JULIET, and in INCEPTION with Leonardo diCaprio. Pete Postlethwaite was one of the best-loved and widely admired performers on stage, TV (SHARPE, THE SINS) and in cinema. In THE ART OF DISCWORLD, Terry Pratchett said that he had always imagined Sam Vimes as 'a younger, slightly bulkier version of Pete Postlethwaite', while Steven Spielberg called him 'the best actor in the world', about which Postlethwaite said: 'I'm sure what Spielberg actually said was, "the thing about Pete is that he thinks he's the best actor in the world."' This is the story of a diverse and multi-talented actor's eventful life, told in his own candid and vibrant words.
