A Blues history docu-series has premiered on Amazon Prime this week, according to broadwayworld.com.
The three-part series “Monochrome: Black, White & Blue” featuring Morgan Freeman, Chuck Berry, Bill Wyman, B.B. King, Jake Bugg, Carlos Santana, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray and 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 produced documentaries about B.B. King,Nat King Cole, Jimi Hendrix 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. From America’s deep South, to Detroit and New York, this 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.
