NEW DOCUMENTARY REFLECTS PRODUCER'S LIFE

At the grand opening of the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, revelers got one of the first glances of the Tom Dowd & The Language of Music feature-length, independently produced documentary. Profiling the life and work of legendary producer/engineer Tom Dowd (who passed away in October 2002), producer/director Mark Moormann premiered the film at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. The film includes interviews with such notables as Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers Band, Les Paul, Arif Mardin, Phil Ramone, Al Schmitt and many others, while historical footage, photographs and classic music tracks expose the audience to the world of the recording studio. Of special interest is Dowd recounting the collaborative nature of his recording sessions and technical achievements.
