The Greatest Ears in Town is an insightful documentary and testimonial to Arif Mardin; the producer, arranger, musician and multi Grammy award winner. Although not a household name in his own right, the artists that Arif produced and worked with certainly are. Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, The Bee Gees, Chaka Khan, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand and Norah Jones are just a sprinkling of the talent he humbly nurtured during his lifetime. Arif was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005 and unfortunately passed in June of 2006. The documentary follows Arif recording his last album All My Friends Are Here which he referred to as his "life's work" with an all-star cast of singers and musicians, whilst also telling the story of his life and family. It comprises interviews with Arif, Sir George Martin, Ahmet Ertegun, Quincy Jones, Chaka Khan, Phil Collins, Carly Simon, Barry and Robin Gibb, Darryl Hall, and many of the other stars whose successes he helped create. The film includes live studio and concert footage, archival photographs, home footage and a very personal story that built the hits that are now known as international classics.moreless
