King, Jake Bugg, Carlos Santana, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Robert Crayand many more, will explore the deep-routed history of blues music in America – available exclusively on Prime Video, through Amazon Video Direct, from Monday February 12, 2018.
Monochrome: Black, White & Blue, was produced and directed by Jon Brewer whose powerful music documentaries include B.B. King: The Life of Riley, Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark, Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar Hero and most recently Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story. This powerful miniseries manages to lovingly defragment the history of not only blues music but also the plight of the people in America’s deep south.
Monochrome: Black, White & Blue brings the story of blues to life through powerful interviews, live musical performances and sweeping landscapes. From America’s deep South, to Detroit and New York. This captivating and enlightening documentary series races 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.
