My friend Chad Fowler put together this really incredible group of free jazz musicians this summer to cut a record in New Orleans. I got to shoot footage of the session. It was kind of magic to watch for many reasons. Over the few days the session took place I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Alvin Fielder play drums, tell stories and generally school anyone lucky enough to be around him in what it means to be dedicated to your craft. Alvin sadly passed away last week and with Chad's permission I am posting this rough cut of footage from the Dopolarians (Kidd Jordan, William Parker, Alvin Fielder, Chris Parker, Chad Fowler & Kelley Hurt) recording one of Chad's compositions, "Guilty Happy". Hoping to put something a little more solid together soon.
