Movie Info

In the 1930s, musician Bob Wills took his love for the blues and jazz, fused it with the country sounds that dominated his native Texas and Oklahoma, and created a whole new form of music -- Western swing, in which big bands (complete with horns and strings) played up-tempo dance tunes that moved Western music in a brand new direction. Bob Wills and his band the Texas Playboys became massively popular in the Southwest, and the Western swing sound they pioneered is still championed today by groups such as Asleep at the Wheel and the Hot Club of Cowtown. Fiddlin' Man: The Life and Times of Bob Willis tells the story of this musical maverick and features vintage film clips of Wills and his band performing some of their biggest hits. Songs include "San Antonio Rose," "Time Changes Everything," "Sittin' on Top of the World," "Lone Star Rag," and more. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore
