Sugar - a sweet little movie

Sweet little movie. Meta reviews here.
September is always a month for extended re-visiting of Coltrane's work, it being his birthday and all. Been enjoying Lewis Porter's thoroughly researched and chock-full-of-musical-analysis tome John Coltrane, His Life and Music. Recommended reading for any month.

Tyson - incredible and spooky

Saw James Toback's Tyson last night. Strong, deserving reviews at Meta. That guy was a mofo in the 80s/early 90s. Was it really that long ago? So incredible, everything he achieved as a teenager and very-early 20s marauder. Kind of like Tony Wiliams but I guess Tony wasn't such a loose cannon.
