Director Dexton Deboree penned this exploration into the dynamic life of AJ1 from its unlikely origins to its role in disrupting NBA rules, birthing sneaker culture, and influencing a social and cultural revolution. This is the story of a shoe that changed the world.
For this film, I worked on a delightful big band remake of Louis Prima’s classic 1936 “Sing, Sing, Sing” chart.

Next influential album. "The Mississippi Delta was shining like a National guitar..." (pic on right is the latter). @PaulSimonMusic broke all the rules with #Graceland, and came out the other side having created a wholly original and inspiring fusion of musical cultures. https://t.co/pXIw0q7Drm
Next most influential album: @billyjoel is, in my eyes, one of the greatest songwriting craftsmen ever. He assimilates numerous and diverse influences fluidly, then brings it back with freshness, color, and a sense of place and belonging. His music is the soundtrack of my life. https://t.co/FGFcI9hJJW
Next album. Complete genre shift. Discovering Gershwin as a teenager led me to Ravel, and when I heard how this small-handed Spanish virtuoso conquered the demands of the left hand concerto...then brought her dazzling virtuosity and grace to the G major one...it's perfection. https://t.co/R8eExkViu9
