I'll never forget the first time I heard Lead Belly singing "C.C. Rider," I was entranced. Like most people of my generation, I grew up listeing to rock & roll. All of a sudden, in an instant, I could hear where it had all come from. And I could feel that the spirit behind the music, behind that voice and that guitar, came from somewhere much, much farther back in time.

Many people I know had the same shock of recognition. Rock & roll seemed to just come to us, on the raido and in the record stores. It became our music, a very important way of defining ourselves and separating from our parents. But then we uncovered another, deeper level, the history behind rock and rhythm & blues, the music behind our music. All roads led to the source, which was the blues.

We all like to imagine that art can come from out of nowhere and shock us like nothing we've ever seen or read or heard before. The greater truth is that everything - every painting, every movie, every play, every song - comes out of something that precedes it. It's a chain of human responses. The beauty of art and the power of art is that it can never be standardized and mechanized. It has to be a human exchange, passed down hand to hand, or else it's not art. It's endlessly old and endlessly new at the same time, because there are always young artists hearing and seeing work that's come before them, getting inspired and making something of their own out of what they've absorbed.

When you listen to Skip James singing "Devil Got My Woman" or Son House singing "Death Letter Blues" or John Lee Hooker laying down one of his snaking guitar figures, when you really listen - and believe me, it's not hard, because this is music that grabs your full attention from the first note - you're hearing something very precious being passed down. A precious secret. It's there in all those echoes and borrowings, all those shared phrasings and guitar figures, all those songs that have passed down from singer to singer, player to player, sometimes changing along the way and becoming whole new songs in the process.

If you already know the blues, then maybe these films will give you a reason to go back to it. And if you've never heard the blues, and you're coming across it for the first time, I can promise you this: You're life is about to change for the better.

- By Martin Scorsese

Under the guiding hand of Martin Scorsese, The Blues is a seven-part television series of personal and impressionistic films viewed through the lens of seven world-famous directors who share a passion for the music. The films, by Scorsese, Charles Burnett, Clint Eastwood, Mike Figgis, Marc Levin, Richard Pearce, and Wim Wenders, capture the essence of blues music and delve into its global influence - from its roots in Africa to its inspirational role in today's music.

The series is motivated by a central theme: how the blues evolved from parochial folk tunes to a universal language. The Blues traces the journey of the music from Africa throughout America, across to Europe, and back again and explores its contribution to all popular music. Simply put, it is the journey from Robert Johnson's Delta blues "Love in Vain," to John Coltrane's transcendental anthem, "A Love Supreme." Driven by the beat of performances by famous players from every kind of music the blues has inspired - hip-hop, rhythm and blues, soul, country and rock 'n' roll - this seven-part series takes us on a journey as soulful and ebullient as the music itself.

More than seventy-five diverse artists perform in the film, representing traditional and contemporary blues; African, American, and British influences; and featuring archival and recent appearances. Some of the many talented musicians include: Corey Harris, John Lee Hooker, Ray Charles, Dr. John, Willie King, Taj Mahal, Keb' Mo, Otha Turner, Habib Koite, Salif Keita, Ali Farka Toure, Big Bill Broonzy, Willie Dixon, W.C. Handy, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Bessie Smith, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Marcia Ball, Dave Brubeck, Jay McShann, Pinetop Perkins, Jeff Beck, Cream, Tom Jones, B.B.

During the 1960s the UK was the location for a vibrant social revolution. The post-war traditional jazz and folk revival movements produced & sowed the seed - in the fertile musical ground for the roots of a new kind of blues music - entirely influenced by the authentic black blues of the USA. The British musicians at the heart of this musical revolution continued to pay homage to the originators of the music and to make a huge global audience aware of the likes of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Freddie King and others.

Mike Figgis' film mixes interviews with dozens of the key players of the British blues movement with new music from an all-star jam session at the famous Abbey Road studios. Tom Jones, Jeff Beck, Lulu and others revisit classic blues standards, accompanied by a superb band of musicians. The results are electrifying.

Says Figgis: "I'm interested in why there was such excitement about this black music among Europeans. To that end, I've put together a group of these musicians, augmenting the line-up with some younger talent as well. Hopefully the resulting recording session of some blues standards, and the discussions that follow, shine some light on why at a particular moment the blues was reinterpreted abroad and reintroduced in a new form that was universally embraced."
