it would of been wrong to of just stand up and give the pre-concert lecture, before my screening, right

OK, as long as you are accompanied by 'Tootie' Heath.

I actually considered trying to create a spontaneous post-film discussion when it was shown at the National Gallery of Art in February, but they were showing another film after. Sort of Chewy's idea in reverse :)

45 years later, the wounds have not healed, not that they really should. Wayne Shorter's contributions were my favorite part of the film. I read it as Wayne telling us to remember Lee Morgan the man, not the murder victim.

When I saw the film here in Santa Fe , "Tootie" did a q & a AFTER the screening. It was very good!!

There may be out-take footage from Wayne's interview. Maybe it will be bonus material on the DVD :)

I was impressed that they didn't use The Sidewinder.  (Or did I just not notice it?)

this director's previous documentary 'My Name Is Albert Ayler' (2006) was never released, except for a nordic tv broadcast, which is the only reason anyone has it via youtube.

I saw it in a theater not too long after it was released. It had a very short run.

Just saw it yesterday. I thought it was pretty good, and like several others here, I enjoyed Wayne Shorter's stories the most.

So did I, here in Oregon - so it was 'released' by my definition...

Aww, crap, the run at the Lincoln Center ended yesterday...and I'm in NYC today.

Why can't they just stream it on-line, for a fee? I'd gladly pay my $5 to rent it for 48 hours, and watch at home.

I'm sure it will be available.  Ron Mann executive  produced it and I'm seeing him tomorrow. I'll ask when and where.

One more hat in the ring on this one - unable to attend any viewings over here and really keen to get to see the film so very interested in any online streaming options.

Thanks! The Trane documentary showed semi-locally at two places the past couple of weeks, but I didn't go because it was too far (at least an hour and a half).

Better catch this one while it's reasonably close (only 2 days run).
