  1. “Get Free” explores the journey of Abbey Rader, a jazz drummer, Buddhist and martial artist, who dedicated his life to the pursuit of spiritual freedom at all costs. His purpose was defined as a young musician in New York. In the fertile mid-60s, he experienced the spiritual power of John Coltrane’s quartet in the West Village. From then on, he sought to release himself from all constrictions, musical or otherwise. His path brought him to a Buddhist master from China and jazz legends on both sides of the Atlantic. Fifty years later, his quest to perform and live in the moment continues.
