Dewey Time

The Story of Jazz Artist Dewey Redman 90min

As the noted jazz historian Stanley Crouch so aptly puts it, “…when saxophonist Dewey Redman plays, smoke and flames shoot out the bell.”

This is Dewey’s story, from the jukejoints of Fort Worth to the walk-ups of Brooklyn, from free-jazz to sweet melody, from segregated Texas to Lincoln Centre, from struggle to redemption. This is real jazz.

Daniel Berman’s often tender film examines a highly respected, musically versatile and uniquely imaginative improviser. Through his classic early recordings with Ornette Coleman to his membership in the venerable Keith Jarrett Quartet, to his own magnificent live shows, it’s the sound of Dewey’s horn and the magnetism of his character that keeps jazz fans coming back to his music.
