industrial mode of production involving a division of labor (screenwriting as separate from direction and postproduction) and control placed in the hands of an executive producer or studio head.

In early 1936, the immense labor of Porgy and Bess behind him, Gershwin contacted his agent, Arthur Lyons, about possibly writing a film musical of his own. Hollywood was natu- rally interested. Paramount floated the idea of a musical for Bing Crosby; Samuel Goldwyn, one for Eddie Cantor; and RKO’s executive producer, Pandro S. Berman, an adaptation of Strike Up the Band for Fred

surprise ends The Newest Jazz Generation 161 with the very definition of a jazz groove, a mellow musical conversation between Messrs. Weinstein and Person that transcends the players’ ages and styles, achieving the joyous act of communion that has made this music an international language. Credit for this enduring recording is due Mat Domber, the owner and executive producer of Arbors Records, who not only immediately felt the need to record Mr. Weinstein but made this twenty-year-old the producer of his first album, in charge of choosing the musicians and the

Life in a Comma-Factory phone girls and file clerks guarding an Executive Producer, they cater to the whims of the Boss Microchip, the Central Processing Unit. It's possible, for instance, that the CPU may have other things on its mind which had better not be vio- lated. So, clear its desk!
