“NYT CRITICS' PICK: Musician feels radically fresh... shot and edited with the same inquisitive spirit that defined Studs Terkel's oral history Working. Those seeking a nutshell definition of what it means to be a committed artist need look no further.” - NEW YORK TIMES "A masterpiece... Among the most significant efforts of the year - or any year this decade, for that matter.” - MOVIELINE Common sense says you can't make a living in America playing avant-garde improvisational jazz.
