JAZZ ON A SHOESTRING -
Premiered at the Denver Jazz On Film Festival in February
..the new documentary about bassist entrepreneur,
Peter Ind….a biographical account of Ind's musical and business
life…Ind talks fluently of his early days and his experiences as
a member of Geraldo's Navy, his time in New York as a student of Lennie
Tristano and later as a ten year resident of that city…..Back in
London Peter found the building which became the Bass Clef club and Wave
recording studio…the Bass Clef ran for a decade and Ind presented
many of the finest US and British musicians during those years…at
71 Ind continues his personal search for wider artistic fulfilment..."
... This unusual approach to documenting a jazzman's life journey deserves..
proper exposure. It would make a great South Bank Show (UK cultural programme)…. Peter Vacher, Jazz Journal March 2000
Jazz on a Shoestring: Peter Ind (Britain 1999) -
North American Premiere Colin Millar's new documentary focuses on Englishman
Peter Ind, who moved to the US in 1951 to become a major bebop musician
and later returned to Great Britain to become an eloquent, passionate
spokesman for the need to study improvisational jazz as a disciplined
process. The film will be of considerable interest to teachers in general,
to those respecting the utility of discipline, to anyone passionate about
anything, and to those interested in learning how the study of jazz can
develop one's full potential as a human being" Film Festival notes, The fourth
