Sale Format(s): DVD

Starring Mose Vinson, Memphis Slim and Ma Rainey II. Produced by Ann Rickey. Directed by Alexis Krasilovsky.

"A straightforward look at blues pianist Mose Vinson - the interviews from his boyhood home in Mississippi intercut with the man at his piano, singing in his soulful wail, which is where he really shines."
- LA Weekly

"'We called him Mr. Boogie Woogie,' Memphis Slim explains, in his affectionate tribute to his less successful colleague .... Vinson's Holly Springs boyhood as the son of a Saturday Night musician, his failure as a sharecropper, his involvement with the Baptist church, his lonely life now ... all are captured with striking visuals .... The intimacy that the small-format video medium can provide is displayed here to its fullest extent. ... Vinson's world is beautiful, troubled, and important."
- Film Library Quarterly
