You may all know Arthur Russell very well already. If so, well done. If not, you’ve been missing out. He’s been rightly described by many as a ‘genius’ (a many who don’t use the term lightly) and is the subject of a documentary made a couple of years ago (late blog post; unorthodox, maverick, yeah), called Wild Combination. I’m yet to see it, but it recently made a very good friend of mine cry, so it must be good. I’ve embedded the trailer for the film below. And to further illustrate the beauty and breadth of his work, there’s a selection of personal favourites below that.
