Abstract:

The blues: a musical journey consists of seven feature-length films that capture the essence of the blues while exploring how this art form so deeply influenced music and people the world over. The series begins with the journey from Africa to the Mississippi Delta, where the music grew from slaves' field hollers, work songs and spirituals, then travels up the Mississippi River to the juke joints, house parties and recording studios of Memphis and Chicago, and culminates with the emotional embrace of this African-American creation by musicians and people throughout the world.
