"[This]...semi-documentary film was completed in 1958 in Chicago...Long before the concept of Black Culture existed, THE CRY OF JAZZ argued that Black American life shared a structural identity with jazz. It is one of the earliest documentary films made by Black Americans...[The film] is structured in seven parts. Parts 1, 3, 5 and 7 consist of dramatic scenes in which the significance of jazz and Black American life is discussed by an interracial cast. Sandwiched between these discussions are parts 2, 4 and 6, in which the structure, history, and future of jazz and Black American life are presented in documentary form, along with a jazz soundtrack. Most of the music is composed and performed by the late jazz great Sun Ra and his Arkestra. The music is vintage Sun Ra from his '50s Chicago years." -- www.edblandmusic.com/TheCryofJazz.htm

"Composer, photographer and filmmaker Phill Niblock's classic of experimental underground filmmaking with a sensational soundtrack by pianist Sun Ra and the members of his Solar Arkestra! Shot in the mid 60's when the Arkestra was based in New York, this film was produced using a unique negative process and ultra-tight close-ups on the moving hands and mouths of the musicians. The result is a virtually abstract music film."--Conteneur
