dir. Nicholas Capezzera, Sam Osborn/USA/2020/78 min.

In 1966 a landmark suite of orchestral jazz entitled The Universe Compositions" was written  for Miles Davis and set to be recorded by The Miles Davis Quintet. That moment would never  happen. The quintet broke up and the compositions were lost for 50 years… until they were  finally recovered by Milesonly protégé, Wallace Roney - the one man Miles would trust to fulfill  his wish. As Wallace prepares to record and debut "Universe," he must find a way to uphold his  mentor's legacy. The work would take on an added poignancy when Wallace unexpectedly  passes in March 2020 before seeing the music's release out in the world.
