Critic Reviews for Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story
Framed by a memorial concert at San Quentin, where the noted bebop player was incarcerated for many years, this 2014 documentary by N.C. Heikin lays bare the contradictions of his creative life.
The late jazz great is honored with a terrific tribute concert and a respectful documentary.
Collectively, the mixed approaches illuminate a complicated man, at once spiritual and temperamental.
Despite a surfeit of talking-head commentary, the film has a strong feel for the emotion behind Frank Morgan's acclaimed bebop.
It's a fond and forgiving tribute to the man, filled with music that moves beyond happy and sad, and toward something like brilliance.
