Dave Grusin Not Enough Time

"DAVE GRUSIN: NOT ENOUGH TIME"  is a Feature Length Documentary Film about the adventure-filled life and extraordinary career of composer Dave Grusin.
Directed By Barbara Bentree. Produced By Barbara Bentree, John Rangel. Co-Produced by Nick Heizman and Robin Heizman.
"DAVE GRUSIN: NOT ENOUGH TIME" is Directed and Produced by two jazz musicians, Barbara Bentree and John Rangel. Their signature approach is described as "musicians making films about musicians." It takes a musician to ask questions that make sense for composers, producers, and other musicians. It takes a musician to have in-depth conversations with other musicians about the past, present and future of the music and film industries. And it also takes a musician to put together a sequence of music concepts in a film that is accurate and compelling.
Bentree and Rangel bring a lifetime of musical experience into their work as filmmakers. The Director, Barbara Bentree, has been a Storyteller for years; producing her own films, working on network television and film productions, as well as writing original stage plays, books and screenplays. Co-producer John Rangel, has played the piano onstage with Dave Grusin in concert, and he has performed all over the world in some of the most prestigious jazz festivals as a pianist and composer. Rangel has also worked in the television and film industries, primarily in music production.
This duo brings a wide range of experience and passion to this film project. As Bentree says, "I have been a fan of Dave Grusin for 40 years and yet I have been surprised by new information about Dave on a daily basis."
The motivation of these producers for bringing Dave Grusin's story to the film format is personal. "We want to change the face of documentaries about musicians...especially jazz musicians. Dave Grusin is one of the most hardworking and accomplished musicians of the past fifty years. A film tribute to his incredible body of work and a retrospective of Grusin's massive contribution to the film and music industries is way overdue.
