A great view into the LA blues scene
4 March 2013 | by brendan-596-204324See all my reviews

This was a great movie about the LA blues scene, particularly as it revolved around Babe's and Ricky's Inn, a mainstay club. We get to see interviews with many of the musicians, both famous and lesser known, about the purity of the blues culture there. Mama Laura, the owner and manager, a transplant from the deep south, ensured with her smiles and frowns that the musicians stick to the soul of the blues. For this viewer, who was new to this culture, I really felt immersed in another world, one of creation, community and heart. We learn about blues as a way of life, in a style that feels both vital and accessible. There is plenty of great music in the movie, great characters, and excellent interviewing that pulls us in to a unique world. Congrats to the filmmakers and musicians!
