Milt Hinton

I was transfixed by the new documentary "Keeping Time: The Life, Music and Photographs of Milt Hinton" shown on the PBS production Independent Lens. I believe the video states that Mr Hilton took over 16,000 photographs and 16 mm movies in his life. The one hour show chronicles his life with interviews of Milt and many musicians, constant music and of course, his photos. This web site talks about the film, has a gallery of his pictures and more.

If you are a bass player or any musician and/or a photographer, you will find this documentary absolutely fascinating.

This video is not currently available for purchase and I recommend you catch it while you can. Quickly check the schedule for your local PBS stations here.
