  • msmichel's rating of the film Imagine the Sound

    The free jazz movement is really done no favours with this 'barely scratching the service' documentary. The film's reputation seems bloated on examination with the participants' self eulogies taking more presence than any examination of historical context. Mind you the pleasure of watching/listening to Bley, Dixon, Shepp and Taylor offers its own rewards.
