Synopsis:
"Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes" explores the unique vision behind the iconic American jazz record label. Since its inception in 1939 by German Jewish refugees Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, Blue Note created an environment for creativity, encouraging artists to push boundaries in search of uncompromising expressions. The result was music with heart, originality and social conscience. Through current recording sessions, rare archive and conversations with iconic Blue Note artists including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Robert Glasper and Norah Jones, the film reveals a powerful mission and illuminates the vital connections between jazz and hip hop.
Evocative photographs and archival interviews provide an intimate look into the creation and philosophy behind some of the most seminal tracks in jazz history. This documentary strives to transmit the values that Blue Note has been promoting since its inception: freedom of expression, equality, dialogue - values we can learn from and that are as relevant today as they were when the label was founded.
