Galt MacDermot. Pianist, composer, writer, African music specialist and all-around living legend. I learned about Galt through album credits. His award winning works have been sampled by some of my favorite producers such as Pete Rock, Large Professor, Premier, DITC, Beatminerz, Beatnuts and Prince Paul, just to name a few. Going back a little further, I found out he has worked with many many other greats as well: Cannonball Adderley, Idris Muhammad, Bernard Purdie and the list goes on. Needless to say, he is one interesting cat. The Gasface Crew from Paris decided to head out to NYC to create the film Lookin4Galt, a humorous documentary about well, Galt. Check out the trailer and follow them on Facebook to stay updated about the film.
