"Two of the most rootfull bluesmen: Rev. Gary Davis and Sonny Terry, introduced by another leggend of music, Taj Majal. This video shows us the power and the glory of the songs, hymns and other compositions by Rev. Davis. With powerfull voice and a marvelous guitar he celebrates with holy grace of the Lord. Sonny Terry makes an exceptional and rare solo performance that reveals his skills as harp player and shows the very escense of whoopi'n the blues as no one ever. An exceptional testimony of two greats of the blues music ever."
