Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes
Not Rated
85 minutes | 
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 many more. In 1939, Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, both passionate about 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.
