Eclipse: Freedom Now

Wadada Leo Smith

Shot in black and white with handheld cameras to get as close as possible to the musicians, Eclipse takes both a modern — framing and editing — and classical — black-and-white — look at a music that reclaims its own creativeness, history (from the Blues to Free Jazz), structure and free improvisation. All these fully-accepted contradictions bestow uncanny energy and beauty to the music of Wadada Leo Smith’s Golden Quartet.

Concert, 52’; Interviews 32’; NTSC, All Regions; English & French Versions.
