This is a piece of late Saturday night news. If planes land in time and all goes well Steve Taylor will be joining us in the morning to discuss the movie Blue Like Jazz that is based on Donald Miller's book of that name. Steve has been a hero of mine since he released I Want To Be A Clone way back int he early 80s. He made a few seminal and subversive albums in the CCM industry before forming Chagall Guevara who had a great Rolling Stone review before record company hassles ruined their momentum. Taylor's belief that Christians should be working outside the getto led to him forming Squint Entertainment which gave the world Sixpence None The Richer among other quality acts. He has more recently moved into film and has directed Blue Like Jazz, a movie based on the Donald Miller book of the same name that has been very influencial in Christian circles for almost a decade.
Blue Like Jazz is being shown in the QFT at Queens University tomorrow afternoon at 3.30 where Taylor will take questions from the audience. £8 in. They have already had to get the bigger room because of demand.
