We are proud to announce our world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival! Blue Note Records was founded in New York in 1939, nearly 80 years later we come back with a film about this legendary label. Congrats to the whole team!
«Blue Note’s legendary catalog traces the entire history of the music from Hot Jazz, Boogie Woogie, and Swing, through Bebop, Hard Bop, Post Bop, Soul Jazz, Avant-Garde, and Fusion. »
«I write what I wish for. – Wayne Shorter»
«Swiss filmmaker Sophie Huber succeeds in taking an intimate look behind the scenes of the legendary American jazz label. As the title promises, the film goes beyond the history of the label and follows jazz as a political statement, which is particularly resonant today.»
