Gorgeously restored, Shirley Clarke’s kaleidoscopic portrait of jazz iconoclast Ornette Coleman mixes performance footage with a vivid recreation of his childhood and interviews with family, friends and fans (including William Burroughs, Yoko Ono and Robert Palmer).
A perfect match of filmmaker and subject – both are pioneers in their respective fields – this is essential viewing for jazz and film fans alike.
