Last of the Mississippi Jukes

2003 NR

Documentarian Robert Mugge explores the juke joints of Mississippi in this fascinating film that traces the origins of the blues down to the nearly extinct clubs where many bluesmen first "made their bones." Actor Morgan Freeman gives a tour of his club, which recaptures some of the original passion of the old juke joints. Featured artists include Alvin Youngblood Hart, Dennis Fountain and Pat Brown, Eddie Cotton, Bobby Rush and many, many more.
