      Director – and piano player – Clint Eastwood explores his life-long passion for piano blues, using a treasure trove of rare historical acts as well as interviews and performances by such living legends as Ray Charles, Fats Domino, Little Richard and Dr. John.
      Says Eastwood: “The blues has always been part of my musical life and the piano has a special place, beginning when my mother brought home all of Fats Waller’s records. Also, the music has always played a part in my movies. A piano blues documentary gives me a chance to make a film that is more directly connected to the subject of the music than the features that I have been doing throughout my career.”
