Mr Selfridge : Music in Jimmy's flat

Music in Jimmy's flat

imdb shows a credit for original music, but this piece has been used for many years on TCM - anyone know the title and composer?

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

That was driving me crazy - as I could not remember where I have constantly heard that music! thanks for saving my sanity

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

still want to know title and cpmposer...

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

TCM - smack heads. That's where I know it from!!

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

I have no idea if this montage will help to answer your question, but if you are a fan of TCM, you will probably enjoy this (even if it doesn't give you the info that you are seeking:)

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

thanks for the effort, but none of those are it

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

Do you know which episode it was? That might help me find it!

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

it was the first episode of this season - 4.1

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

Thanks ~~ I'll see if I can find it online and watch it again. Maybe that will jog my memory!

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

Which ep? 4.1? Or?

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

Actually, it's at the end of 4.2. I re-watched 4.1 today, and there were no scenes in Jimmy's flat, so I went on to 4.2, and there it was! It's the scene where May goes to Jimmy's flat after she tells Harry off (about the Dolly sisters ruining her fashion presentation.)

Since then, after listening to the music in question, I've listened to portions of many Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw YouTubes (because of the prominent clarinet at the beginning of the piece.) So far, no luck finding that particular piece of music, but my husband and I agree that it's familiar because it's been used on TCM! I can't find a thing about it on TCM, either.

you are right- - I forgot PBS shows episodes 1 & 2 back to back on the night the show premiered.

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

I tried checking it with the shazam app and this is what it came up with:

Biography: Kellogg Brothers
A&E Television Networks

I wasn't able to follow up on that because I can't find that episode of Biography online.

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

http://www.amazon.com/Biography-Kellogg-Brothers/dp/B000JRYPDM

do you think it has any connection to Corn Flakes?

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

Doubtful that the music in Jimmy's flat is related to the Kellogg brothers. The documentary probably has a piece of background music that sounds similar to the music in Jimmy's flat.

Shazam makes mistakes sometimes, particularly with tricky music. That said, it's very possible that the music heard in Jimmy's apt isn't uploaded anywhere online-- or at least that particular recording of it, otherwise shazam would have identified it.

Re: Music in Jimmy's flat

Through my job I have access to the entire catalog of Biography eps (among many other things) and was able to access via our subscription and credentials. That piece of music isn't in the Kellogg ep, but there were a couple of jazzy clarinet bits, which is what I'm guessing shazam locked onto.

Sorry it wasn't more helpful.

Sunday night I identified the songs in Call the Midwife using shazam. Fun!
