Milt Hinton, known as “The Judge”, was the most recorded jazz musician in history.

Over his extensive career he played on more than 1,100 sessions as a bassist. He was also a very accomplished photographer whose images captured intimate moments shared between some of the greatest jazz legends in history.

In this short feature Rabbi Neil Blumofe discusses the significance of Hinton’s life, his work and his perspective, and offers a view of what his legacy can teach us today.
