“A smart, exhilarating look at an influential label...
Gets at Jazz's joy and pain"
Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

“Captivating...
Potently directed by Switzerland's Sophie Huber"
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

One of the most important record labels in the history of jazz, Blue Note has been home to such groundbreaking artists as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane. Founded by two German Jewish refugees in 1939, the label's history goes beyond its landmark recordings, encompassing the pursuit of musical freedom, the conflict between art and commerce and the idea of music as a transformative and revolutionary force. Through archival footage, current recording sessions and intimate conversations with legendary artists such as Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter and today’s groundbreaking musicians, Blue Note Records: Beyond The Notes uncovers a history of jazz that is not static, but an art form suffused with deep humanity that remains fiercely political and relevant today.
