This was such a wonderful profile of a great American. This documentary combines my favorite passions: jazz & photography. The photographs of Milton Hilton not only does it document jazz history but the social conditions of the time. The "Whites Only" and "Colored Only" signs from the south show a dark side on American history. What was disturbing about the video was the fact that many people interviewed have recently passed away, almost like a voice from the past speaking about Mr. Hinton. People like Joe Williams, Gregory Hines, and Doc Cheatham. The only problem I have with "Milt Hinton" is that, according to the site, it is not available on DVD. Hopefully it will be available in the future because an outstanding work like this must be preserved.
