Reviews
Several of the performances are among the treasures of filmed music; all of them, whatever their musical merit, are filmed with a rare artistry, a rare attention to making images of music that are themselves musical.
Richard Brody, New Yorker
Few films about jazz treat their subject with less cant than this one. This is photography that has the perfect feel of jazz, and beyond that leaves it alone.
