  • Take Me To The River

    Ah yes, yet another great music documentary about the Memphis/Stax music scene available on NetFlix: "An incredible journey through the Music of Memphis. A film that brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together ..."

    The hook is that they brought all these musicians together to make an album and filmed it, cutting in a lot of historical stuff and interviewing the older folks for personal background. I'm not at all a fan of rap, but when Snoop Dog and a couple of young rappers perform against live funky soul music it's not bad! Not only is the music great in this film but it has such a positive vibe - all the people involved share such generosity, respect and love - something we could all use a lot more of! Cody and Luther Dickinson (N. Mississippi Allstars) produced and appear in
    this film.

    HAving just made my pilgrimage to Stax last spring, this is something I'm interested in, I am working with [and good friends with] a former Stax house bassist, and have sent him the trailer link...
