NY Mag Highlights FULL MANTIS

"The new documentary directed by Jake Meginsky and co-directed by Neil Young explores the life of Milford Graves well beyond his contributions to the avant-garde. While pioneering the role of the drummer in free jazz, the Queens native managed to become an acupuncturist, a sculptor, a martial artist, and an expert of the human heart, writing software that turns its pulse into melody. The film, with Graves serving as its only voice, is a lesson in autodidactism."
