"By documenting the faces and the deep, soulful eyes of the people who make the music I love, these photographs preserve a dimension of blues culture that could easily be lost forever."--B.B. King (from the foreword)
"A fabulous project--real evidence that the music I have always loved is alive and well."--Eric Clapton
"A labor of love and honor for the blues, and all its loudly unsung old-timers."--Pete Townshend
"Music Makers is an essential document of roots music in America. It is alive with the voices of these great musicians, and a pure pleasure to read and ponder."--Rosanne Cash
"Not only are the faces saved for us to look at with gratitude and amazement, but the souls are there too. The photographs capture much more than a detailed, carefully posed image would--it is the simplicity and sincerity of these images that so moves me."--Sally Mann
"Music Makers is a rich portrait of contemporary blues artists and their worlds. This beautifully illustrated book reminds us of how much blues performers enrich our lives through both the wisdom and the sheer pleasure embodied in their music."--William Ferris
