IMAGINE THE SOUND. ...Critic and film historian Jonathan Rosenbaum has said IMAGINE THE SOUND “may be the best documentary on free jazz that we have.” IMAGINE THE SOUND is an eloquent tribute to a group of highly celebrated artists that helped forge the avant-garde jazz of the 1960s.
Focusing on four important and celebrated figures (Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, Paul Bley and Bill Dixon) allowing them to reflect on their careers and those around them that, in many ways, defined the sound of '60s jazz. Plus, there's music. The music in this film is brilliant.

Simple edits with interestingly framed shots work to the directors advantage as the music is emphasized and never distracted from by the film-making.- The Shock of the New, Back Then...
