Description:

It grew from field hollers, work songs and church choirs. It evolved into a uniquely American art form that has influenced people everywhere. There's nothing quite like the blues as you'll see -- and hear -- in this cultural and musical odyssey. The Blues takes you from Africa to the Mississippi Delta, to Memphis and Chicago, and culminates with an emotional embrace of this African-American creation. Your journey comes alive through the lens of world-famous directors who use social, spiritual, and musical impressions to capture the essence of the blues. You'll get to know the forces and artists that shaped the blues tradition. Original performances and never-before-seen footage give you a front-row seat to early bluesmen like Ali Farka Toure; legends B.B. King and Blind Willie Johnson; piano great Ray Charles and Fats Domino; contemporary musicians Eric Clapton and Bonnie Raitt; among many others. Celebrate the blues and enrich your understanding of its contribution to American culture and music worldwide. Each film in the series illuminates the struggles and genius that gave birth to the blues we listen to today.
