Description

FINDING HUMANITY IN AN ACCIDENTAL ICON

A poetic rhythm-charged look at the flawed everyman behind the myth. King endured police brutality, the glare of an unrelenting media and notoriety as the symbolic spark of the LA riots. His plaintive "Can we all get along?" remains an open question in America's complicated relationship with race.

“solo wizardry…riffing as freely and confidently as Sonny Rollins on sax” – Los Angeles Times
