Blackwell North Amer
Playing music so compelling and seductive it "could unhook a bra," Eddie Carnes has made the saxophone his life. Now, at age 60, he has moved from Sweden to Maryland and agreed to allow every aspect of his life to be recorded and studied as part of a research project.
The project's director, Henry McKernan, whose life and marriage has become lackluster, is increasingly drawn to the intensity of Eddie's world. Through Henry's narration and tape recordings of conversations between Eddie and Thelma Watkins, a savvy woman he meets, unfolds this beguiling story of intertwined lives.
