Hinton's eye(s) view
Looks like an interesting PBS piece on the life and photos of the great bassist Milt Hinton, an avid photographer. I just wish it wasn't on at 3 and 4 a.m. in my area. If you've never seen the documentary "A Great Day in Harlem," do. Hinton is one the the memorable story tellers in that film. His CD "Here Swings the Judge" is an enjoyable session of friends having fun playing together. Of course, Milt's friends included legends like Jo Jones and Ben Webster, who even plays stride piano on two cuts.
