    I was pretty enthralled with Country Music by Ken Burns. No one has mentioned it yet?

    Beware Mr. Baker. Amazing documentary about a very interesting man.

    Cure for Pain about Mark Sandman. Another remarkable man.

    This movie has been mentioned several times already, but I also wanted to give it a shout out. It's not just a brilliant music doc, but raises interesting questions about success, ambition, and what it means to pursue a craft versus stardom. Really amazing doc!

    Yes, that one. One part that gets me is the pianist looking for a piano for his concerts. He's trying a dozen theoretically identical pianos. But when he tries The One, you can tell.

    Also, Grohl's Sound City. I may not care for his music but I can't deny his enthusiasm.

    Rick Hall's life story was amazing even though it was full of tragedy.

    Milton Babbitt was a composer who was a major influence on me. He wasn't widely known outside the world of contemporary composition, but he was great and a wonderful character. One of his former students tried to make a documentary, but died before it was finished. Someone else tried to fix it up, but it was beyond disappointing. It was just a bunch of clips and home movie-type restaurant excursions, etc. A real doc about this amazing man is needed, and will surely be coming one day.
