Inside Out in the Open

INSIDE OUT IN THE OPEN focuses on the revolutionary, avant-garde developments in Jazz that evolved in the early 1960's, expanding the boundaries in rhythm, sound, harmonics, and collective improvisation with an expansive openness and deep emotion. It's a tradition that continues to this day, still filled with creative energy and affecting newer and younger listeners. The only voices in this film are of the musicians themselves, speaking about creating music, influences, memories of the 60's and more. Features performances and interviews with Reggie Workman, Roswell Rudd, John Tchicai and Baikida Carroll plus many other notable Jazz performers. An important contribution to the history of Jazz.

'Inside Out In The Open' is a fantastic documentary about some of the most difficult, but also some of the most fascinating music of all time. Not only is it a great start for anyone who wants to know the origin and backgrounds of free jazz, it is also obligatory stuff for all the free jazz afficionados. - Bas Ickenroth, KindaMuzik (Amsterdam)
Free jazz fans who grumbled about "their" music being left out of Ken Burns's much debated PBS documentary 'Jazz' can now rejoice. 'Inside Out in the Open' tells the story of this once-revolutionary (and still often misunderstood) form of music. - The San Francisco Bay Guardian
