“You listen to it and you feel the mud and the blood of the Mississippi-Delta.” And that’s where, according to Martin Scorsese’s evocative documentary, the first of a seven-part series, the blues were born. Narrated by musician Corey Harris and with recordings by ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, Scorsese sends his viewers on a musical journey to the roots of blues music, which reach as far as West Africa. Performances by Taj Mahal and Willie King alternate with rare archival material.
