NYC PREMIERE Executive produced by Wim Wenders and featuring haunting animation and a swinging soundtrack, this film tells the story of the legendary Blue Note Records label. Founded in 1939 by two young German refugees from Berlin with a passion for American jazz music, Blue Note recorded live in New York City at a time when African Americans faced blatant discrimination and segregation, supporting musicians like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk and Quincy Jones.
