Amazing insight into the creative process of a great producer!
1 February 2014 | by me-419-571779See all my reviews

I was glued to the screen for several portions of this documentary and for me that is highly unusual. Especially intriguing were the shots of Mr. Mardin in the studio as he partnered with the artists in creating each track. Interspersed with the modern studio footage was a variety of historical footage and photography and selections from a stunning progression of hit songs. Also interesting were the interviews with artists and colleagues. It's not perfect, about twenty minutes could be cut and the film would be better for it, but there's enough here to merit eight stars. Bottom line: Mr. Mardin's All My Friends Are Here is about to become the latest addition to my musical repertoire!
