Congratulations to Michael Braden, who won a pair of tickets to attend the screening of his choice for Whiplash at the Bytowne Cinema and also receive a CD of the soundtrack. The tickets and CD were generously donated by the Bytowne Cinema.

"J.K. Simmons plays Terrence Fletcher, a jazz band leader at a top New York conservatoire. Miles Teller is Andrew, a gifted drummer dragged into Fletcher’s inner circle. But this is not cool jazz that Fletcher is teaching."

Whiplash received a very respectable rating of 8.7 on IMDb

The answer to our skill-testing question, "What notable jazz musician does Fletcher tell his students about ?" was Charlie Parker.
