More Description

Spanning three decades of American musical history, composing team Nate Royce and Gregory Solomon grow, desire, succeed, grieve and love the same woman. They also conquer Tin Pan Alley, struggle through the Great Depression, celebrate birth, mourn the dead and ride the leaps of radio, records, 8-tracks and cassettes. Along the way they encounter Duke Ellington, facing his entire band paralyzed with stage fright, Count Basie, succumbing to swindling contracts and the Sex Pistols swindling record labels. Nate's son, Ben Royce, comes of age in the turbulent sixties. His love for one woman, a svelte redhead named Rickie Taylor, embodies the great love once shared by both his father and Gregory. It is through love and loss, both past and present, that all three men finally confront Nate Royce's most crippling issue: determining how much to risk, balanced against what to settle for in life.
