What makes the story of jazz label Blue Note exceptional is not only its roster of artists – Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, to name just a few – but also its founders. Jazz buffs Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff fled Germany in the 1930s and settled in New York City, making it their life’s work to give the music they so admired the respect it deserved. Produced by Wim Wenders, this film is as cool as the Blue Note sound and as stylish as its iconic albums’ covers.
