Chicago Blues

Released in 1972 and direct by Harley Cokeliss, Chicago Blues is not just a remarkable film but also one of incredible beauty, crafted with care by professionals who possess a true love and understanding of Blues music and throughly respect its history and key players.

The music and artists featured in Chicago Blues accurately reflect the structure and mood of Chicago’s Blues movement witnessed in the late 60’s, being arguably the single most important American city in the growth of post-war electric blues.

Including performances by Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Johnny Lewis, J.B. Hutto , and Buddy Guy, as well as interviews with Dick Gregory and Willie Dixon.
