Down to earth like being there
5 June 2007 | by opentofunnSee all my reviews

Morgan Freeman talks with the musicians between songs in language that gets them comfortable. You get a feeling of what it would be like to have a chance to get to know each artist. The conversations between songs are really relaxed and Morgan really shows he loves the music. The tone of the interviews usually conveys a little history, stories they like to tell and direct conversation to give us a behind the scenes insight. The whole film captures a down home feeling like sitting in on a jam session behind stage. The music is very well recorded and the camera work conveys a feeling of being in a small audience very close to the artists. If you like women who sing the blues this is a great documentary. Morgan Freeman adds a great level of insight in the way he interacts and the language he uses that really opens up the conversations, very well done.
