Abstract:

Willie Dixon is the man who changed the style of the blues. This video features the legend himself performing eight songs live in concert and answering questions about his remarkably influential career, the ups and downs of the blues as a genre, and how his work for Chess Records revolutionized blues and rock and roll. As a songwriter and producer, the man was considered a genius. When someone wanted a hit song, they went to Dixon and played it how he said. He took big band music and Mississippi blues and melded them into something new, opening the door for Motown and others to walk in and take it even further. Mick Jagger, Robert Plant, Chuck Berry, and Eric Clapton are just a few of the artists indebted to Dixon's blues-based hollerin'. Songs include classics like "Wang Dang Doodle," "I Got The Blues," "I Just Want to Make Love to You," and more!
