Just A Guy Who Knows

Just A Guy Who Knows is a new 21-minute short film that was directed, shot and edited by Mike Ercolini and Dan Scofield.  Many of us know Dan as one-fourth of the Philadelphia quartet Shot x Shot. (And, by the way, we just announced this mind-blowing event with said ensemble.)  Anyway, the short film is about legendary saxophonist Sonny Simmons, who we featured last season in a duet performance with Bobby Few.  That gig was named one of Wire Magazine's best concerts of 2008. Simmons is well known for his collaborations with the leading figures in the jazz avant-garde including Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy, Elvin Jones, Jimmy Garrison, McCoy Tyner - the list is endless and beyond impressive. Enjoy!
