Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

Best Trailers for June 2020


Welcome to the incredible story of Don Ellis 1934-1978, one of the greatest but least known musicians of the 20th Century.

ELECTRIC HEART -don ellis Feature Length Documentary Film premiered in Los Angeles May 2007 tells the story of the Man, his Times and most importantly his Music. Ellis was the first ever musician to fuse together Jazz-Rock-Classical and his version of World Music long before anyone thought of doing it. His one-of-a-kind compositions and arrangements cannot even be played by the top Jazz Artists today. His Electric Orchestra turned Jazz on its head and changed the course of the genre forever. A complete non-traditionalist, Don Ellis and his Bands played in the 1970's with Rock Bands such as Janis Joplin and The Grateful Dead. No other Jazz Artist was ever marketed in such a way. Ellis crossed-over into new paths and never looked back creating music that is simply put, remarkable! Now completely forgotton, ELECTRIC HEART makes an attempt of bringing the name of Don Ellis back to the forefront of Jazz & beyond where it has always belonged. He died of a heart attack in 1978 at only 44 years old, having accomplished more in his era than any musician alive then and today. The film is in pre-release in the USA with Foreign Distribution in the UK only with a "Special Edition" DVD Release.  The Film has advanced Public Screenings lined up for 2009 including The Library of Congress.

"I hope that artists everywhere aspiring to do what your heart is telling you to do have the opportunity to talk and educate yourself about the life of Donald Johnson Ellis."
