Stop Making Sense. The first and greatest of the many very good music movies made by director Jonathan Demme, who died last week at 73. The playful 1984 “big suit" movie, cleverly shot to pull the viewer in by never showing a crowd shot, and featuring the late, great Bernie Worrell on keys. Available on iTunes.
Jaguar Wright and Gerald Veasley. Veteran Philly soul singer Wright, who once released an album called Divorcing Neo 2 Marry Soul, teams with jazz bassist Veasley to present "The Music of Nina Simone" as part of the Philadelphia Jazz Festival. Sunday at Ardmore Music Hall.
Chuck Berry, "Wonderful Woman." The second single from the late, great rock-and-roll architect's forthcoming Chuck, due June 16. This one features Gary Clark Jr. working a lick reminiscent of "Back in the U.S.A." and reinforces the sense that Berry was working on this album for decades. It doesn't sound like the work of a dying man.
Paterson. Jim Jarmusch’s charming indie flick starring Adam Driver as a William Carlos Williams-admiring New Jersey bus driver, featuring a Method Man cameo, a sly Iggy Pop homage, and songs by Tammy Wynette, Killer Mike, and Lester Young. On demand.
Archer Dreamland. The eighth season of the animated comedy series about super spy Sterling Archer time-travels to Raymond Chandler noir L.A. in 1947, with Aisha Tyler’s Lana as a sultry crooner and Wyatt Cenac, Wendell Pierce, and Keegan-Michael Key voicing the members of her jazz band. Wednesdays on FXX.
