Hi Garrett,

That documentary is very good!  I saw it at the Cleveland International Film Festival earlier this year.  Erykah Badu and Branford were exceptional!  The film is a must see for everyone and anyone who loves music and is concerned about where the music industry is headed.  Many left the auditorium not only enlightened, but saddened and bewildered about what is happening with the music industry and radio today.  There was a panel discussion with the director and producer of the film afterwards.

This documentary looks like it could be interesting.  Branford and trumpeter
Ephraim Owens (Austin, TX based, I think) are two of the featured artists
along with ?uestlove, Erykah Badu, Dave Matthews, etc.

''... a pianist whose evocative touch and poetic (but unsentimental) sensibility convey the wisdom of deep musical/life experience.'' -- Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times 

'' ... originality, elegance, dexterity and most of all ... great sense
of  swing, time, space and phrasing ... a superior piano jazz trio.'' -- Gilbert Mathieu, Jazz Improv

''... impressive range of arranging and improvisational skills.'' -- Mark Holston, Jazziz

''Slow ballads contain a heartfelt force, while up-tempo burners swing with fire ... recommended session that celebrates the timeless nature of modern jazz and its universal appeal.'' -- Jim Santella, L.A. Jazz Scene

''For lovers of piano trios, this album is a must; for jazz radio, all tracks on this impeccable recording are highly recommended.'' --  Ed Trefzger, JazzWeek

''Masterpieces of form, style, rhythm, heart and ever-loving swing...There is a fire and compelling spirit within these tracks that captures the character of jazz better than recordings by bigger names in more expensive contexts.'' -- Thomas R. Erdmann, jazzreview.com

''... exquisite musical persona ... an aural delicacy for modern-mainstream jazz aficionados.'' -- Glenn Astarita, ejazznews.com

''... will certainly blow newbies away with his lyricism and sure fingers.  A real piano treat that's untouched by little outside his soul.'' -- Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap 

This CD has also been favorably reviewed by Down Beat, the UK-based Jazz Wise, and others.
