No Sun in Venice

The film may have been a turkey (late 50s French-Italian romance/thriller set in The Floating City) but the soundtrack to No Sun in Venice, composed and scored by their pianist & leader John Lewis (1920-2001), is a Modern Jazz Quartet classic album.

The photograph at the top of the page is by James Lucas. His aerial photographs depicting unique images of cities all over the world are simply stunning.

MJQ - Venice (1957) 


  1. That's a beautiful picture, though I'm presuming its colourised. Even Venice can't be that beautiful in real life.

    1. I'm not so sure. It could just be a (very) sunny day. Did you look at the others - New York, London, Rio de Janeiro?

    2. As much as I was allowed to, given that they're on X and I came off X once the preening manchild took over. There were some lovely images though.

  2. Great shot of Venice - it even took me a little while to spot the link to the mainland so an island indeed.

    Like the theme music also and so of its time.
