Description by OLDIES.com:

Gil Scott-Heron's long-standing political commitment and protean influence on rap are finally given their due in this outstanding documentary. Throughout, the music of the Midnight Band is a supple, seductive fusion of soul, funk, jazz, pop, and Afro-ethnic roots. Scott-Heron himself fairly glows with passion and sincerity É an unusually warm, witty and likable human being.

Product Description:

Innovative master of fusion jazz Gil Scott-Heron is given a suitable tribute on this musical documentary. The politically vocal musician is known for his original combination of jazz, soul, funk, rap, and African traditional music. BLACK WAX, directed by Robert Mugge, was filmed in part during Heron's birthday concert at Washington D.C.'s Wax Museum Nightclub. Together with his Midnight Band, he performs an emotional set which cements his important position in the annals of jazz and pop music.
