“Why should jazz have all the fun? Pop and indie artists too seldom throw their creative weight into the art of interpretation. But the sometimes dormant tradition is alive and well in a new revival of songs from The Point!, Harry Nilsson‘s 1971 cult-classic film and soundtrack, featuring new arrangements by Andrew Bird, Martha Wainwright, DeVotchKa, Nada Surf, and other contemporary artists.”  –Amano Recording

MVD Visual released a DVD of The Point! on November 20, 2012, The Definitive Collector’s Edition includes the animated film plus twenty-five minutes of bonus material including: Who Is Harry Nilsson?, Pitching the Point, Making the Point, and Legacy Of The Point.
