Don Ellis - Electric Heart

Histoire/Biographie, États-Unis 2009

"Don Ellis - Electric Heart" tells the story of one of the most innovative musicians of the 20th century. Don Ellis (1934-1978) put together a mixture of jazz-classical rock and his kind of world music, long before this fusion of different musical styles became fashionable. He was also one of the first in jazz to experiment with unusual rhythms and electronic music. Important companions and musicians such as bandleader Maynard Ferguson, Pulitzer Prize winner Gunther Schuller and pianist Milcho Leviev talk about his life, times and music. Rare archival footage shows how Ellis took jazz to new heights without looking back at musical traditions. All the more incredible that his life story and musical genius could be forgotten. This portrait now illuminates for the first time the short life of one of the greatest musicians of all time, a rebirth of his electrifying and magical sound. A treat for generations!
