Just plain great. Cinemax's spectacular Sessions series brings together another super-band—B.B. King, Etta James, Gladys Knight, Dr. John, Chaka Khan, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Billy Ocean, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the late Paul Butterfield—for a show that's as hot, smooth and strong as bourbon, neat. The best moment: Etta James and Dr. John together growling and grinding through I'd Rather Go Blind.
