"Imagine the Sound" now on Amazon Prime

7 posts in this topic

I just discovered that Imagine the Sound featuring Archie Shepp, Cecil Taylor, Bill Dixon and Paul Bley is available on Amazon Prime tv. I think the way it works is that if you pay  Amazon Prime it's free but otherwise costs $1.99 or something like that to rent.   If you've never seen it you should.

Thanks - added it to my collection.

BTW, just saw Shepp in a Jazz Gallery discussion with Ashley Kahn and a few others about the anniversary of Giant Steps. Very interesting.

I think I saw this as part of a jazz films season at one of the independent cinemas as part of my student days, back when it was released. Recall Bill Dixon was in it.

Already on my Amazon list !

Finally got round to watching this last night.

To be honest, I thought it all looked a little sad and seedy. Bley and Shepp looked like they were close to or immediately post collapse. 

It was great watching Cecil Taylor play, though. Incredible to see his hands move across the keyboard.

I am not a fan of free jazz per se, but I have this on DVD and consider it one of the finest jazz films I own. I saw in in a small Toronto theatre (seating 100 people max,)when it first came out around '81.
