Standing In The Shadows Of Motown gives overdue credit to a group of unassuming musicians who quietly created one of popular music's most enduring and spectacular musical legacies. Most celebrated is departed bassist James Jamerson, whose fiery presence and technical prowess was largely responsible for shaping the Funk Brothers' supremely distinct sound. In addition to interviews, as well as re-enactments and archive footage, Justman gathers together the musicians for an unforgettable reunion concert. Featuring the vocal support of several contemporary artists, including Joan Osborne, Ben Harper, Chaka Khan, Gerald Levert, and Bootsy Collins, the Funk Brothers prove that they haven't lost a beat.Paul Justman's inspiring documentary pays tribute to one of the most influential, yet unrecognised, collection of musicians that has ever been assembled. The Funk Brothers played the background music on the seemingly endless string of Motown classics in the 1960s and 1970s, resulting in them having more number one hits than The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, and Elvis Presley combined. Shot on location in Detroit, Standing In The Shadows Of Motown reunites the surviving members as they reflect on the groups' storied past.
