    I was at the Museum of Modern Art this week for a press screening of a film ("Mickey One" starring a very young Warren Beatty, with music by Eddie Sauter, solos by Stan Getz) that will be part of a film and animation series and art exhibit called Jazz Score. I'll have some more about this on the WBGO Journal very soon, but that's not what this post is about.

    The screening sent me to the web looking for jazz animation and I came across this great animation of John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" on You Tube. Take a look. Let it load so that it syncs up. It'll give you a great appreciation of the genius of Coltrane. Emjoy - David Cruz
