“Roll” With The Great Gatsby

The Great GatsbyTo the excitement of literature aficionados old and young alike, Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, this summer’s quintessential 3D adaptation flick, hits theaters tomorrow.

Just think, it won’t be long now before you’re in the theater being captivated by Leonardo DiCaprio’s icy stare as he portrays the troubled and mysterious Gatsby in a world obsessed with stature and rich with excess.

If you should get the chance to focus on something other than the lush environment Luhrmann — known previously for his work on Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge! — has created, make sure you listen up for Jelly Roll Morton’s “New Orleans Bump,” nestled away amongst the star-studded cast and adding to the musical pulse of this film.
