Film shot entirely to a recorded Jazz score - Gigi Gryce's Orchtette including great players likes Richard Wyands on piano, Reggie Workman on Bass, Mickey Roker on drums, Eddie Costa on vibes, Gigi on woodwinds & flute, and Richard Williams on trumpet - and amplified in 35mm/24fps audio sync playback for the dancers on location at The Long Island Sound. It’s then fine-edited based on the beats of the score with 1963's leading Martha Graham Dancers, Donald McKayle, Mary (Bunny) Hinkson, and Matt Turney.
