  • New Orleans's culture is a rich and varied amalgam of multiple influences from around the world, and it is here that African, Caribbean, and rhythm & blues meet to form the infectious sounds of Southern funk music. This documentary explores what funk music means to a wealth of luminaries and proponents, including Keith Richards--who extolls the virtues of all things New Orleans--Bonnie Raitt, Earl Palmer, Snooks Eaglin, Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas, and the Neville Brothers. Live concert footage is combined with engaging interviews, and archive footage that features Professor Longhair and Fats Domino. The climactic, explosive concert, held in New Orleans on April 27, 2004, features a lineup of over 80 artists playing a range of styles, including jazz, brass band, blues, and the music of Mardi Gras "Indians." In another of the program's highlights, Keith Richards covers Fats Domino's "I'm Ready," accompanied by Earl Palmer and Walter "Wolfman" Washington.

  • Critic Reviews
    "There's not a second in this film that isn't a reminder that New Orleans in its architecture, cuisine and multicultural diversity as well as in its music is a unique and major American center of culture. Murphy has made a film more valuable than he surely ever could have imagined."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[I]ts effect is keenly piercing."
