Join us for the Atlanta premiere of the documentary film, "The Life, Love & Hate of a Free Jazz Man & his Woman." A Q&A with the producer of the film Rob Peterson will follow the screening. Music from The Convergence and Currency will close out the evening. The Life, Love and Hate of a Free Jazz Man and His Woman is a document of the last march of a once deadly saxophone player named Arthur Doyle. Doyle was born in Birmingham, Alabama in the days when it earned the nickname "Bombingham". He gigged with Gladys Knight and her Pips, The Blue Flames post Jimi Hendrix and many more crucial musicians in the 1950s and 60s. He moved to NYC in 1967 four months after Coltrane died and quickly became one of the rising stars of Jazz's New Thing in the 1970s. Due to infiltration, rumors of infiltration, and dis-integrative forces all around the scene Doyle and his associates suffered abuses both psychological and physical. Some went straight and got day jobs and some disappeared never to be heard from again. Doyle continued to do his thing, his way, all the way. He turned down Sun Ra for a second time, joined punk and no-wave outfits and eventually moved to Paris where he spent 5 years being railroaded around the prison system for a crime he did not commit. They wouldn't let him have his horn so he wrote a memoir and a songbook that today stands at over 300 original tunes. This film is his last testament, his last shows on this earth.
