Inside Out In The Open, by Alan Roth


"Inside Out In The Open is a 60-minute documentary focusing on the revolutionary developments in jazz music which evolved in the early 1960's, expanding the boundaries in rhythm, sound, harmonics, and collective improvisation, with an expansive openness and deep emotion. 

The film revolves around interviews with eleven musicians, whose words are complemented by their music and that of many other musicians. 

Free improvisational music is a tradition that continues to this day, filled with creative energy and affecting newer and younger listeners. The voices of the musicians, speaking about creating music, their influences, memories of the 60's from the first generation, is exciting and instructive to new musicians and to anyone interested in the creative process."
