First aired on PBS in the US in 2003, and it is now being repeated on SBS Ondemand. ( Dunno if SBS have shown it before but idc 'cause I haven't seen it )This brilliant seven part music series contains personal and impressionistic films viewed through the lens of seven famous directors who share a passion for the blues and the stories behind the music.
The series was produced by Martin Scorsese who directed the first episode. Mixes original footage and current muso's interprets ( even Nick Cave gets a guernsey ). Have to be a dedicated bluesboi or gal tho as each episode is 1:30:00 long.
It is the definitive blues anthology.
