A personal, generous tribute reel designed to keep a musical master's legacy very much alive.New York PostSeptember 10, 2010
Conventional in style and is likely to mean more to the sadly forgotten musician's fans than to others.New York TimesSeptember 10, 2010

This rich portrait of a most complex artist beautifully, movingly and humorously explains the enigma, glory and tragedy of his life.ColeSmithey.comAugust 29, 2010
...does something that few such films accomplish: it allows the audience to feel as though they have walked a mile in a man's shoes.
