Tales From the Musical Melting Pot

By Tal Skloot

Harpist Boris Goldmund and tuba player Zachariah Spellman are very different people, but they share the ability to see beyond the notes to the universals behind musical styles. Their tales are stories of creativity that find outlets among the possibilities of a great city. Tal Skloot's short film, with interviews by Jeff Kaliss, connects the dots between them.
