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...
