If you like music, you must see this movie.
The impact Memphis music has had on music across the world is enormous. Most people don't know the roots of the music that they like to listen to today and that many of those roots are firmly planted in Memphis. This film covers Memphis' musical history and current day impact like no other film. The film doesn't cover the well-known Memphis legends in the same manner as other movies or documentaries have done in the past. This film introduces the viewer to lesser known music royalty that had a big influence on the sounds coming from Memphis that impact bands and artists across the world. These greats are paired up with current day Memphis artists to collaborate and create new music from old standards. The movie not only provides a history lesson of Memphis' musical past but takes the viewer on the journey of creating this one of a kind album with old and new artists performing together. I thought it was telling when one current day artist, admitted that he had never worked with a live band in the studio before! If you like music of any kind, this movie is a must see.
