In 2007 the BRAVO! channel, in conjunction with Leda Serene Films aired this 1/2 hour documentary on the life of award-winning Trinidadian born jazz trumpet player BROWNMAN ALI. It is an insightful and in-depth look at one of the most acclaimed jazz artists in the nation, diving deeply into his personal history, growing up in a racial charged environment, his time in New York City with Randy Brecker & clearly illustrating why he is now widely considered a vanguard for the evolution of jazz in Canada.
EDITOR'S NOTE: This documentary was filmed in 2006 just *before* he was asked to join the legendary GURU's JAZZMATAZZ, replacing Donald Byrd in that seminal jazz-hip-hop group, and is thus a fascinating look at his pre-Jazzmatazz career.
