Made for public television, this effusive documentary gathered three generations of New Orleans piano legends — blues and boogie man Tuts Washington; his protégé, R&B pioneer Professor Longhair; and the great songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint, a Longhair disciple — for an historic keyboard summit. A film as rich in flavor as New Orleans's musical culture itself that will have you grooving and bouncing in your seats.
Directed by Rob Stegman and Todd Kwait
Now looking like a singing Mark Twain (and showing a similar laconic wit), the New England troubadour credited with launching the singer-songwriter movement and introducing audiences to the work of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, and Jackson Browne tells the story of his musical life, culminating with a concert at Boston Symphony Hall celebrating his 50-year career. Essential viewing for folk fans, screening ahead of Rush's Nov. 12 performance at the Old Town School of Folk Music.
