Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes|
Directed by Sophie Huber
Legendary Jazz Label Blue Note Announces 80th Anniversary Year of Celebrations including this film!
Q&A WITH DON WAS IN PERSON!
The iconic jazz label Blue Note Records, founded in New York by two German Jews who fled Berlin became the home to Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Herbie Hancock, Norah Jones and so many more. In 1939, Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, both with a passion for jazz, a musical genre banned in Nazi Germany, established Blue Note Records. Blue Notes history goes beyond the records, encompassing the struggle of black artists to be heard, fair royalties, and the idea of music as a revolutionary force. It would become the most influential jazz label of the post-war era. Everyone who mattered in jazz recorded for Blue Note. This film looks back to the glory days while showing how the label, now under the supervision of the Grammy Award-winning, master producer Don Was (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, John Mayer), remains socially and musically relevant. No jazz lover will want to miss Sophie Huber's revelatory and thrilling musical feast.
