Monochrome: Black, White And Blue

Monochrome: Black, White And Blue (2016)

Director Jon Brewer (B.B. King: The Life of Riley) lovingly defragments the history of not only blues music but also the plight of the people in America's deep south, bringing the story of blues of life through powerful interviews, live musical performances and sweeping landscapes. Monochrome: Black, White and Blue features a remarkable list of renowned artists and luminaries such as Morgan Freeman, Chuck Berry, Bill Wyman, B.B. King, Jake Bugg, Carlos Santana, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray and many more. From America's Deep South, to Detroit and New York this captivating and enlightening documentary special traces the evolution of blues through pivotal moments in American history. Brewer discovers that there was no music called 'the blues' when its creators just stepped into a new feel of musical expressionism - just a means of releasing a lifetime of pain and oppression, from which music, momentarily, set them free.

Directed by Jon Brewer.
