Milford Graves (1941–2021)

Milford Graves has died at the age of seventy-nine. Never heard of him? That’s okay. His website describes him as “percussionist, acupuncturist, herbalist, martial artist, programmer, and professor.”

NPR has an obituary. And here, from YouTube, are fifteen wild minutes with Graves and John Zorn.

To that I would add the 2018 documentary "Full Mantis". It's available on Amazon Prime.
