This outstanding 1989 documentary by Preston McClanahan focuses on the life of bassist Chester Zardis, "the last of the first" great African-American jazz pioneers, a master of the bass, and an important jazz innovator.

Filmed during the last year of his life, the bassist is captured performing in various settings, ranging from solo bass to duets with multi-instrumentalist Danny Barker to performances with trumpeters Kid Sheik Colar and Wendell Brunious, Trombonist Louis Nelson, and clarinettist Michael White to name a few.
