This film attempts to capture Coleman's playing, as if it were seared by light. As a bonus, talks about his musical and literary influences, his technique, and his career.
A key player of the NYC Downtown scene since the late 70âs, Anthony Coleman is credited on John Zornâs greatest albums, as well as on some Naked City projects. He also was the special guest to the first David Krakauerâs Klezmer Madness and has performed numerous times with Marc Ribot. His influences range from the great jazz piano tradition(s) (from Fats Waller to Jelly Roll Morton, Thelonious Monk and Cecil Taylor via Duke Ellington) to contemporary music (Morton Feldman, Mauricio Kagel) and klezmer. This film attempts to capture the music played by Anthony Coleman, as if it were seared by light. A few memories of a filmed desert and a dervish-woman appear to accompany and foil this instantaneous musical moment.
