Frank Lloyd Wright - The Man That Built America (with Youtube link)

I recorded this back in August and only just got to see it "Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man Who Built America".
What an astonishingly beautiful programme about the genius of American architecture of the late 19th up to mid 20th century. So many stunning buildings... such vision and courage to see that vision to its fruition.. If you have any interest in the subject (and even if you don't) you really should watch it. You surely won't regret it.

a bunch of dudes jamming but some of the abrupt edits serve as a reminder it owes a lot to technology. It finds ***** distancing himself from his musical past, but it sounds equally far from the dense abstraction his music would take on later
