And now, for the profile of America's Next Big Auteur, the exciting Edward Bland. Alas, it's almost the one year anniversary of his passing. He only directed one film, the documentary the mortals call The Cry of Jazz. I wonder if he included a lengthy tribute to himself in it.
Anyway, after directing that, he decided enough was enough, so back to the day job, orchestrating for such films as A Soldier's Story. Yes, even the bold like Norman Jewison need a little help to get their stuff to the screen once in a while.
