‘Beyond the Notes’ Film brings the story behind Blue Note’s legacy to you

The legendary Blue Note label continues its 80th birthday celebrations with the upcoming release of a new documentary, ‘Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes.’

The film explores the vision behind the famous jazz institution, directed by Swiss filmmaker Sophie Huber.

The documentary traces the company’s history from its inception in 1939 and the way it was able to create a sympathetic environment for the creation of some of the greatest jazz musicians of all time. It features the history of Blue Note’s founding German immigrants Alfred Lion & Francis Wolff. The pair escaped Nazism to come to America and pour their love of jazz into the establishing of this enduring symbol of creativity, expressionism, and style.

Throughout the film, viewers get to sit in on modern-day recording sessions, see rare archives and listen to the conversations of some of the most iconic artists in Blue Note history. Hugely influential work of titans such as Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Horace Silver, and Miles Davis are also featured.
