- 1 hr 35 min
Take Me To The River is a documentary featuring contemporary soul and R&B musicians alongside the original artists responsible for creating the iconic sound linked to the Stax Records company. This documentary focuses on the story of Stax that is told as the stars of the 1960s come together with contemporary stars to create a new album featuring collaborations between the historic artists and modern stars. The majority of the Stax story is told by the original stars as they discuss how to move forward with their collaborations with contemporary artists. As the two eras of R&B music collide the modern singers and rappers, including Snoop Dogg and other contemporary musicians explain how the iconic Stax sound has influenced them and shaped their careers. Although this documentary is an homage to the stars of the past, it also reveals how the Stax sound is still used in contemporary music and will continue to be developed long into the future.
