Synopsis

“Satan and Adam” chronicles the unlikely pairing of legendary one-man band Sterling “Mr. Satan” Magee and harmonica master Adam Gussow in a once in a lifetime film, shot over 20 years, and showcasing the greatest music duo you never got a chance to see…

Princeton grad Adam Gussow had no idea what a shortcut through Harlem would bring him in the racially tense summer of 1986. Lovelorn, and seeking solace in Blues music, the sound vibrating out of Harlem held a rhythm that might just heal a broken heart.

Playing in front of the phone company was the Mississippi-born, electrifying one-man Blues band, known to all in Harlem as Mr. Satan. Twenty years Gussow’s senior, Mr. Satan had amassed a crowd rarely seen for a street performer, roaring with a musical ferocity Gussow had always dreamed of being around.

“Can I sit in with you? I won’t embarrass you.” Gussow asked.

The rest was, almost, history…until, after playing the biggest stages worldwide, Mr. Satan mysteriously disappeared...
