Last night we watched the Arthur Russell documentary, Wild Combination, which was one of the sweetest and saddest and most beautiful documentaries I’ve ever seen. I remember the first time I’d ever heard Arthur’s music — I was certain it was something that had been released within the last year, I couldn’t even begin to wrap my head around the fact that it was from the 70’s/80’s. His music transcends space, time, even death. Eternal, and beautiful – like the ocean that was often his inspiration. Wild Combination captures that so well, and is a wonderful and touching portrait of an incredible man and life, and his music.

Here’s the trailer for the film, followed by the song which it takes its name from. We love you, Arthur. Thank you for giving the world such beautiful sounds.
