Imagine the Sound
Canada, 1981, 90 min, colour, documentary
...may be the best documentary on free jazz that we have....
Called the "THE jazz film" by The Globe and Mail and compared to The Last Waltz, Imagine the Sound is an exuberant profile of four legendary figures associated with the jazz avant-garde of the sixties--Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, Bill Dixon and Paul Bley.
The film features interviews and singular, dramatic performances by pianists Cecil Taylor and Paul Bley, tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, and trumpet player Bill Dixon.
Alongside the dynamic performances, the film captures the diverse history and politicized roots of this unique musical genre. Imagine the Sound is an important chapter in the history of the jazz documentary.
