Nat Hentoff and his passionate championing of jazz made him beloved by musicians and fans, while his outspoken civil libertarian writings didn’t always sit well with his readership. This interesting portrait traces his successes and missteps—from growing up Jewish in Boston where he began a radio show, through his influential writings on jazz and ground-breaking programme on television, to his articles in the Village Voice. Featuring an outstanding jazz score, this well-crafted documentary shows us a man who is both fascinating and frustrating—a singular figure who happily upends expectations in his pursuit of free expression.
