Cecil Taylor: All The Notes
In 2003 director Chris Felver turned his attention to the media-shy, towering free jazz figure of Cecil Taylor. Economy of means - a set-up using one or two DV cams at most - allowed Felver to get up close and personal with pianist, gaining unprecedented access to Taylor's Brooklyn home/workplace, nailing his frequent stentorian pronouncements on life, art, music and childhood memories, as well as shadowing him to various concert engagements, teaching gigs in California, and a trip backstage to meet old friend Mal Waldron.
