The Major Scale

May 15, 2019

From the first few blasts of the horn and guitar strums, Dos Santos' album "Logos" will intrigue and possess you with its lovely dark edges–a reverie of reverb bolstered by an ethereal tempo. Their brand of Latin post-rock and psychedelic jazzy textures can both haunt and rock you. 
Milford Graves may very well be the ultimate Renaissance Man. As a percussionist, professor, scientist, jazz musician, botanist, and martial artist, there's more than a passing resemblance to the cult sci-fi character Buckaroo Banzai. But in all seriousness, Graves is truly one of the greats. His life, his dynamic, and his artistic accomplishments are all certainly the stuff of movies. Lucky for us, former student of the artist, Jake Meginsky, has put together a brilliant documentary to tell his story. Titled Milford Graves Full Mantis, this film is full on Milford Graves. Meginsky joins in to talk about the film and the man behind the talent.
