This film by Tom Van Overberghe examines the life and contributions of legendary pianist Mal Waldron. In addition to boasting a recording career featuring many influential records under his own name, he has been a composer for film, accompanist to some of the most important jazz musicians and singers (including Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Thad Jones, and Jackie McLean to name a few), and an activist leader. This engaging film also features footage of Max Roach, Steve Lacy, Jeanne Lee, Andrew Cyrille, and Reggie Workman.
