All these Sid Caesar writers lived a long life and some still going. Must be something to laughter being the best medicine.

So sad. His vocals on When I First Came to Town (on Henry’s Dream) are beautiful.

Jacqueline Pearce, who did a lot of British television but is perhaps best known for appearing in a pair of Hammer films, The Reptile and The Plague of the Zombies.

I suspect on her side of the Atlantic she's more famous for Blake's 7 than anything else.

Wonderfully this episode of the Jonathan Ross presented Mondo Rosso series from 1995 has recently appeared on YouTube, which features a very brief (and NSFW!) segment on Jacqueline Pearce and her role in The Reptile! (Stick around for the interview with Ken Russell!)

As that clip (a bit crudely) suggests, she is in two great Hammer films, the main role of The Reptile and arguably the best sequence of any Hammer film, the resurrection into nightmare scene of The Plague of the Zombies. She is also a great villainous teacher in the early 90s BBC children's series Dark Season, which is a fun, light but memorably horrific series in itself but also has the distinction of featuring one of Kate Winslet's earliest roles!

As are his vocals on "The Willow Garden", a great Nick Cave B-side. His album Nothing Broken is worth checking out, too.

Also among SF fans, even beyond the UK. The four season boxes of Blake's 7 were among the first things that I imported after I got my first multi-region DVD player. In fact, the fact that Blake's 7 was (and is) in an intractable rights conflict hell in the US was one (among a good number) of the reasons why I took the leap.

I was saw Randy Weston perform at the St. Michael's the Jazz Church in NYC (under the Citicorp Bldg) at a memorial service for Sun Ra.
When I went to Morocco about 5 years back, I looked to see if Weston, a long-time Moroccan resident, might be performing, but it turned out he was in NYC that week playing.
Woody Allen was a fan, and a couple times slipped some Weston records in the background in his films.

For anyone interested, I'd rec:
Niger Mambo -- a great bouyant, joyous tune
Zulu -- Not far off from a Sun Ra exploration.
Off the same Africa Highlife album as Niger Mambo.
Tanjah -- a lot of Morocco in there.
Little Niles -- probably Weston's best known composition. Has a rather Monkish feel to it.
Congolese Children -- short and with vocals. Sweet.
African Cookbook -- long and atmospheric.
Actually a lot of Weston's music is low-key and introspective, though I'm more drawn to his upbeat forays.
