Milford Graves is quite possibly one of the most renowned jazz percussionists around, a pioneer of free jazz, which essentially liberates percussion from the time-keeping role. He approaches all aspects of his life with the same curiosity and creativity that he brings to his percussion. With interviews in his home and garden and archival footage of him grooving on his drum kit, Milford Graves Full Mantis offers a unique portrait of a man that is constantly searching for a different kind of sound.
