For American Epic Sessions the filmmakers have re-assembled the machine that allowed America to first hear itself. They have replicated the atmosphere of America's seminal 1920s field recordings down to the smallest detail, with top American artists recording straight to wax, using all the original microphones, amplifiers, and other equipment from that era. This is the first time that any performer has been able to use this machinery for over 80 years. Aided and abetted by Jack White and T Bone Burnett, today's legends are given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to relive the experience of the founding mothers and fathers, their idols, and remake the music that changed America and changed the world. 32 Track double CD version featuring Alabama Shakes, Nas, Rhiannon Giddens, Los Lobos, Elton John and Jack White, Bettye Lavette, Pokey LaFarge, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, Taj Mahal, Beck and more.
