It offers a survey of many different blues subgenres and tangential music styles, as well as a survey of almost all the most notable blues performers over time.

Scorsese makes a defensible case by including these figures, but it risks degrading everything that has come before as mere prologue to rock rather than a viable art form in itself. That impression is buttressed by the selection of a bounty of songs made famous through rock cover versions, but in the end, it's still inarguable that this collects an impressive hunk of some of the best American music ever recorded.

A companion to the groundbreaking PBS documentary series, this volume is a unique and timeless celebration of the blues, from writers and artists as esteemed and revered as the music that moved them. Included in this stunning collection are Essays by David Halberstam, Hilton Als, Suzan-Lori Parks, Elmore Leonard, Luc Sante, John Edgar Wideman, and many others Timeless archival pieces by writers such as Stanley Booth, Paul Oliver, and Mack McCormick Evocative color illustrations and rare vintage photography Illuminating and in-depth conversations and portraits of musicians, ranging from Robert. studios to musicians such as Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, and The Beatles, Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues proves, in the words of Willie Dixon, "The blues are the roots; every-thing else is the fruits.

Musical journey" is an apt description, as Scorsese and the six other directors responsible for these seven approximately 90-minute films follow the blues-the foundation of jazz, soul, R&B, and rock & roll-from its African roots to its Mississippi Delta origins, up the river to Memphis. Director Martin Scorsese (The Last Waltz, Raging Bull, Gangs of New York) pays homage to the Delta blues. Musician Corey Harris travels through Mississippi and on to West Africa, exploring the roots of the music. The film celebrates the early Delta bluesmen through original performances (including Willie King, Taj Mahal, Otha Turner, and Ali Farka Toure) and rare archival footage (featuring Son House, Muddy Waters, and John Lee Hooker)
