Making Music with Bunky Green
Bunky Green is a Chicago institution, as both a brilliant creative alto saxophonist and as an influential educator. Green’s recording opportunities have been shamefully small, despite the fact that he almost had a jazz hit with a great arrangement of “On Green Dolphin Street” on his early ’60s Argo album Testifyin’ Time. He made an exceptional 2010 collaborative album with alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa, which also features Jason Moran and Jack DeJohnette. This is a six-minute documentary on the making of that album.
