Over the years, Larry "Big Al" Jordan has experimented with a number of moneymaking schemes. He has peddled everything from cocaine to chocolate chip cookies, human hair to hiking boots. But none of his ventures -- or misadventures -- has generated the kind of cash flow and acclaim he now enjoys from the simple sale of T-shirts featuring the name of the neighborhood where he grew up: Watts.

A church turns out to be a fine theater for Marianne Faithfull's drama. There is something quasi-religious in the ferocity of her emotions as she strives for transcendence, and when she descends into the fires of guilt and degradation, the sanctuary offers a welcome refuge. In this 1989 performance at St. Ann's Church in Brooklyn, Dr. John and Garth Hudson beam in to join her regular sidemen, and director Larry Jordan keeps finding new visual perspectives without forcing it or losing unity.
