My Name is Albert Ayler (2008) has been described as one of the greatest jazz films of all time. The documentary chronicles the life of the 1960s avant-garde jazz saxophonist Albert Ayler who famously said ” If they don’t like it now, they will.” And we do. The track below is from the film.
• The Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History in New York will open it’s August ‘Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film’ on Wed. Sept. 16 with a screening of “My Name is Albert Ayler.” All film screenings during the festival are free.
Looked like a great festival, wish we were there.
Rare and revealing 17 year old audio interviews with Michael Jackson and family – hear them here on Kush Blog
Kush was recently contacted by Chris Cardell to tell us about a documentary that he produced 17 years ago on the life of Michael Jackson. We were so impressed that we decided to publish the first two parts of the documentary here.
Chris spent several months tracking Michael Jackson’s life, interviewing everyone from his family to his schoolteacher and the documentary also featured a very rare and fascinating interview with Michael Jackson himself.
So listen to the first two parts right here on Kush Blog (below). You can link with Chris at http://twitter.com/chriscardell. And don’t forget to check out Kush Online Store to browse our Michael Jackson DVDs too.
