||DEWEY TIME - A JAZZ LIFE (75')
GENRE: ARTIST PROFILE
EVERY JAZZ MUSICIAN HAS A STORY. Profile of versatile jazz
saxophonist, Dewey Redman, with interviews with son Joshua
Redman, Charlie Haden, Jo Lovano and many more.
Performances shot at Sweet Basil's in New York City and in
Fort Worth, Texas. This will shed some overdue credit to
the world's greatest living tenor saxophonist. "His story
is also about the struggle to survive in the face of a
culture that couldn't care less," says filmmaker Daniel
Berman. "He is one of the last Afro-Americans who grew up
under segregation and who played the music from his
street." Gemini nomination for Best Editing.
