Film Producers synopsis and info:

Karl Berger Music Mind

Documentary, Germany/USA 2018, 71 Min

Director: Julian Benedikt

Legendary jazz improvisational pioneer Karl Berger is celebrated with intimacy and
grandeur in "Karl Berger - Music Mind". The film traces his journey from Heidelberg
to Paris to New York to Woodstock, culminating with his celebrated anniversary
concert at this year's Theaterhaus Jazz Festival in Stuttgart.
Berger, who founded the Creative Music Studio (CMS) with jazz innovator Ornette
Coleman and singer/wife Ingrid Sertso, first encountered jazz by playing with US
soldiers who were stationed in postwar Germany.
He went on to collaborate with the likes of Don Cherry, Carla Bley, Jack DeJohnette,
Dave Holland, Pat Metheny, Anthony Braxton and established the CMS in Woodstock
as one of the premier places for free improvisation and world music.
In a film rich with interviews, music and archival footage, "Music Mind" provides an
inside look into the creative process and unique approach toward music that makes
Karl Berger one of a kind.
