Anderson does the Butterfield legacy a service with "Horn From the Heart."

The anecdotes weave an entrancing narrative, though the movie could have benefited from more vintage performance footage of Butterfield's band at the height of its powers.

It's full of music that makes the case for its subject's pre-eminence... and has an interesting slant on the issue of cultural appropriation.

In terms of production values, this is not a snazzy film. But the interview footage with family and colleagues, including Bonnie Raitt and Elvin Bishop, an early Butterfield guitarist, is smart and thorough.

Anderson... is attentive to chronology and to Butterfield's legacy, but isn't making the kind of film that might win the artist new fans or magically transport older ones back to the moment when he was at the top of his field.
