Synopsis:
Based on Allan Slutsky's award-winning book of the some name, 'Standing In The Shadows Of Motown' tells the story of the 'Funk Brothers', the backing musicians for such legendary performers as Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and the Supremes, The Temptations and Marvin Gaye.
It is a story of triumph and tragedy, hits and heartbreak, giving the amazing assemblage of musicians who created the sound of Motown the chance to finally step out of the shadows and into the limelight.
An outstanding documentary which combines exclusive interviews, archive footage, re-enactments, reminiscences and thrilling new performances by the reunited Funk Brothers. Joining this legendary hit-machine onstage are incredible contemporary vocalists such as Ben Harper, Joan Osborne, Meshell Ndegeocello and Montell Jordan and R&B greats Chaka Khan, Gerald Levert and Bootsy Collins.
