Keep On Keepin' On

A Short Film About Soul

 

The long awaited documentary, featuring northern soul legend Nolan Porter and Stone Foundation. The LA soul singer made 2 albums in the early 70's with legendary bands "Little Feat" and "Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention", before becoming disillusioned with the music industry and turning his back on it for the next 30 years. That was until NF Porter andhis brand of soul music was picked up by the UK northern soul scene. Nolan's songs became must have's for any northern soul connoisseur, and once again made their way into the limelight, famed for his hit's "Keep On Keepin' On" and "If I Could Only Be Sure" later released by Paul Weller.

The 35min film about soul shows Nolan return to the music business after a 30 year absence, to work with an up and coming soul band from the UK, Stone Foundation.

Keep On Keepin' On - A Short Film About Soul, will be screened at a selection of independent cinema's, this summer and through to the end of the year.

With guest interviews from ex NME journalist and author Paolo Hewitt, and fellow author Mark Baxter, rare studio footage from Nolan's first recording's in 40 years, live tour footage and much much more!

There's also another film/documentary called "Keep On Keepin' On" that's recently been completed. This one is an American film about jazz legend Clark Terry. Not sure how much confusion this will cause among the wider population. Again ,this looks like a very interesting film. This is a trailer from the American jazz KOKO:
