Director John Anderson joined the WGN Morning News Friday to talk about his new documentary "Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story."

Paul Butterfield grew up in Hyde Park, and would go on to learn the blues from Muddy Waters and other blues masters on the city's South Side. He's considered one of the greatest blues harmonica players of all time. The interracial Paul Butterfield Blues Band released its first LP in 1965. It's been called the #11 Blues Album of All Time.

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2015. Paul Butterfield is part of an elite class of musicians who have been inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Blues Hall of Fame. Other artists in that group include BB King, Chuck Berry, Billie Holiday, and Eric Clapton.

"Horn From The Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story" is running theatrically through the United States until February 2019.
