Summary
Director Jon Brewer worked closely with the gregarious and charming musician and was given extraordinary access to his friends, family and colleagues. This is a no holds barred, powerful documentary that explores how an orphaned kid from Mississippi turned his life around, battled against all odds and against unrelenting racism to overcome even the toughest critics in the entertainment industry, to become 'King of the Blues'
