Syl Johnson: Any Way the Wind Blows

  •   Rob Hatch-Miller
  •   United States


After struggling for decades to break out, soul singer Syl Johnson (“Different Strokes”) left the music business in the 1980s to open a Chicago fried-fish chain. Since then, he’s become one of the most sampled artists in hip-hop, with everyone from Run-DMC to Kanye West borrowing his distinctive voice and beats. With a lively soundtrack, this buoyant documentary follows Johnson’s bid to make a comeback in his seventies, celebrating the life of one man who can’t stop the music.
