 A heartfelt case for including Toledo’s own Marshall “Big Jack” Reynolds in serious conversations about America’s blues icons will be made in a documentary that premieres at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Maumee Indoor Theatre.

Titled That’s A Good Way To Get To Heaven: The Music & Life of Big Jack Reynolds, the documentary will be also available for purchase on DVD for another $15 as part of a combo pack that includes a 20-track audio compact disc and liner notes.

The package includes many rare recordings by Reynolds, including songs he recorded in the 1960s for Detroit labels Fortune, Hi-Q, and MAH’s.

Reynolds grew up in the South, though exact details are unknown. Many people believe he was born in Albany, Ga., a city of 73,000 people in southwest Georgia that also served as the birthplace of the famous blues pianist Ray Charles.

It’s not entirely clear how long he lived there, but he was influenced by that region’s country blues.

Reynolds grew up listening to blues legends Lightin’ Hopkins, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Memphis Slim, and moved north sometime in the 1940s with a mass migration of southerners looking for factory work. He used to claim that, when he was 8 or 9 years old, the legendary Jefferson would let him pick his guitar strings with a straw, although some have since questioned if that ever happened.

Big Jack Reynolds ended up in Detroit, where he became part of the Motor City’s blues renaissance of the 1950s and early 1960s. For a while, he worked daytime as a plasterer. He moved to Dayton after the Detroit riots of 1967.

In the 1970s, he settled in Toledo. He was no stranger to the city, though, having performed several times in Toledo while still living in Detroit to be close to relatives there.

Reynolds became a fixture on the Toledo-Detroit blues scene, wielding his guitar and what has been described as a mean harmonica while exuding both charm and attitude in his vocals. He also played drums and piano at times.

He died Dec. 29, 1993, at age 72 of heart failure in what was then known as St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
