Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, Frankie Presto, a Spanish war orphan raised by a blind music teacher. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six magical strings. But Frankie's talent is touched by gods, and it weaves him through the musical landscape of the 20th century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll. Along the way, Frankie influences many artists: he translate for Django Reinhardt, advises Little Richard, backs up Elvis Presley, and counsels Hank Williams. Frankie elevates to a rock star himself, yet his gift becomes his burden, as he realizes that he can actually affect people's futures: his guitar strings turn blue whenever a life is altered. Overwhelmed by life, loss, and this power, he disappears for years, only to re-emerge in a spectacular and mysterious farwell."
