Musicians and music listeners alike can often find comfort through their unique musical expressionism. Exploring how their feelings can be honored through their love of songs is powerfully presented in the new three-part docuseries, ‘Monochrome: Black, White & Blue.’ In honor of the series’ distribution this week, Shockya is debuting a new video interview with Jon Brewer. The video interview features the filmmaker explaining such topics as the history of the title genre, what he learned from making the series and how he feels it will resonate with audiences.
Brewer’s new docu-series was exclusively released this week on Prime Video, through Amazon Video Direct. ‘Monochrome: Black, White & Blue,’ which is an Emperor Media Production, in association with Bounce Sales Division Ltd. and Blues Trail Limited, consists of three one hour episodes. It’s available to stream as a special offer to Amazon Prime members in North America, courtesy of Kew Media Group.
‘Monochrome: Black, White & Blue’ explores the deep-routed history of Blues music in America, and features interviews and musical performances by such entertainers as Morgan Freeman, Chuck Berry, Bill Wyman, B.B. King, Jake Bugg, Carlos Santana, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray and many more. The series aims to lovingly defragment the history of not only blues music, but also the plight of the people in America’s deep south.
Brewer, who’s a celebrated documentarian, both produced and directed ‘Monochrome: Black, White & Blue.’ His previous music documentaries include ‘B.B. King: The Life of Riley,’ ‘Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark,’ ‘Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar Hero’ and most recently, ‘Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story.’
