Film: It Must Schwing - The Blue Note Story
Bath Jazz Weekend 2020 presents a rare opportunity to see Eric Friedler's wonderful documentary IT MUST SCHWING! - THE BLUE NOTE STORY, about the genesis of the legendary jazz label. It's the story of Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, two emigrés from Nazi Germany who arrived in New York in 1939 already instilled with an enthusiasm for black American music. To their amazement they discovered a motherlode of black talent, playing an incredible modern jazz to which very few Americans were exposed, and set about recording these underappreciated musicians thereby creating one of the leading musical legacies of the 20th century - Blue Note Records. Featuring fascinating period footage, amazing animated sequences and contributions from Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Lou Donaldson, Wayne Shorter plus many other artists from the Blue Note stable, the film also pays tribute to the photography of Francis Wolff whose iconic images were integral to the label's distinctive cover-art house style. Unreleased in the UK, IT MUST SCHWING! has only had a handful of screenings here - don't miss your chance to catch a film that is as beautiful, striking and stylish as the music it celebrates.
Tickets for the film only are £10 and £8 concessions.
Admission is included for those who buy the 3 Day Jazz Weekend Pass and the Sunday Jazz Pass
