Harlem Street Singer Celebrates Reverend Gary Davis's Acoustic Blues

23 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Here's the rare lionizing-a-musician doc that strikes a smart balance between vintage footage, talking-head testimonials, and contemporary tribute performances. Despite the appearance of Peter Yarrow, Bob Weir, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, Harlem Street Singer keeps its emphasis on its subject's fingers, frets, soul, and story. Blind street singer Reverend Gary Davis's acoustic blues and gospel guitar heroics — especially his inimitable, percussive, self-taught technique — are illuminated by way of smart testimony, but the many clips of him in action are so marvelous that this would be a first-rate doc subject even without all these admiring white people turning up to toast him.
