Horn from the Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story is a feature-length documentary about the life and career of legendary blues musician Paul Butterfield. A white, teen-age harmonica player from Chicago's south side, Paul learned from the original masters performing nightly in his own back yard and was later mentored by the great Muddy Waters. Through his music and words, along with first-hand accounts of his family, his band mates and those closest to him, the film tells the complex story of a man many call the greatest harmonica player of all time. The film features appearances by David Sanborn, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Paul Shaffer, Michael Bloomfield, Todd Rundgren and Bob Dylan.
