A forgotten roll of film inspired a musical accompaniment, the North Mississippi Allstars' new record Up and Rolling. Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The album captures the communal spirit upon which the band was founded.
While inspired by the community and music of that Sunday more than 20 years ago, Up and Rolling is the sound of modern Mississippi. Luther hopes, "the music is rooted, but spreads evasively from the kudzu jungle grown over Junior's concrete slab and Otha's porch boards thru the Zebra Ranch's razor wire chain link fence. Transcending time and space, music reaches out into the dark of night like the wisteria vine, looking for free-hearted souls to latch onto and wedge into the foundations of hate, slowly tearing down walls a generation at a time."
