Win Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes on DVD
Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes explores the vision behind the iconic American jazz record label. Since its inception in 1939, Blue Note created an environment for creativity to flourish, encouraging artists to push creative boundaries in search of uncompromising expressions. The result was music with heart, originality and social conscience. Following a successful theatrical run, the film will now be released on DVD, Blu-ray & digital on September 6th 2019. The Guardian called it, “Damn-near immaculate music documentary…respectful, crisply told but depth-plumbing history of the label” .
Through current recording sessions, rare archives, and conversations with iconic Blue Note artists as well as current label President Don Was, the film reveals an intimate perspective of a label legacy that continues to be vital in today’s political climate.
Legendary artists Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter come together with today’s generation of ground-breaking Blue Note artists such as Robert Glasper and Ambrose Akinmusire. These reflections lead us back to the highly influential figures of the past on which the legacy of Blue Note is built: Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Miles Davis.
The film represents the values that jazz embodies, and 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.
