SHOUTIN' THE BLUES is a one shot, one story and one song short film of harmonica great, Sonny Terry . Seated in a motel room on Broadway in Oakland, California where we filmed him while he was on tour with Brownie McGhee, Sonny, with one small harmonica in his hand, creates a complex and soulful blues solo out of his whooping and hollering, after telling us the story behind the creation of that famous solo. Filmed in 1969. More material from this same session is in SONNY TERRY: WHOOPIN' THE BLUES

Sonny Terry: Shoutin' the Blues is available on DVD from the filmmaker Yasha Aginsky and from Vestapol Videos .
