1/31/08: Imagine the Sound

Director: RON MANN
Thu Jan 31 7:00 PM Whitsell Auditorium, Northwest Film Center

IMAGINE THE SOUND remains one of the best documents of free jazz ever made. Ron Mann and Coda Magazine editor Bill Smith profile four artists who were influential in the evolution of jazz into a free-form musical art beginning in the early '60s. The film catches pioneering pianists Cecil Taylor and Paul Bley, tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, and trumpet player Bill Dixon in dynamic performances and fascinating interviews shedding light on their approaches to music and life and the history of this unique musical genre. (90 min)
