Tom Dowd & the Language of Music
This 90-minute documentary profiles the life and work of legendary producer/recording engineer Tom Dowd. A former Atlantic Records engineer, Dowd was responsible for some of the most important R&B, rock, and jazz records ever made. Interviews with recording industry icons tell the story of this humble genius, while historical footage, photographs, and classic music tracks capture the magic of the recording studio. It’s here that Dowd, the unaffected master, recounts the recording sessions and technical achievements that altered the course of contemporary music. The film includes powerful interviews, photos and film clips—both historical and contemporary—of Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers, Les Paul, Phil Ramone, Joe Bonamassa, Ahmet Ertegun, and many more musical giants.
