Chase, Miami Steve, Return to Jersey

NYT has just posted a piece coming tomorrow in print on the front page of the Arts section, on the upcoming David Chase flick Not Fade Away (which I have featured before), about young rock band.  My son happens to have worked on it for a few days.  Carr also interviews Steve Van Zandt, one of Chase's Sopranos henchmen and something of a Jersey legend himself.   James Gandolfini, who is also in the movie, says of Jersey, “A large number of actors and musicians are from there. We are overrepresented in the culture. You have a blue-collar, middle-class sensibility right next to one of the greatest cities in the world, which can make for some interesting creative impulses.”  Trailer:
