“This movie gives you, well, the man’s heart, and it’s a beautiful one.” (NY Times Critic’s Pick)

This new doc about free-jazz drummer and all-around creative dynamo Milford Graves is made in an appropriately free-flowing and discursive style. More than just a musician, the now-76 years old Graves is also a metaphysician and a theorist of musical ephemera. The film follows Graves down some winding paths of meaning and aesthetic speculation that prove to be very interesting and rewarding.

Join us Aug. 24 for an avant/jazz pre-show with DJs Death in Midwinter & Today’s Thrill beginning at 7 PM.
