Blue Note Records is among the most well-known and respected labels in the jazz industry, and next month, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release a new documentary that is focused on the company.
Blue Note Records: Beyond The Notes is scheduled for release Sept. 6 on DVD, Blu-ray and digital. Directed by Sophie Huber, the documentary presents the history of the legendary label, which has been home to the likes of Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Thelonius Monk.
It starts at the label’s creation by two German immigrants — Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff and proceeds through the label’s life from there. The label’s story is told through the use of rare archived label footage, interviews with current Blue Note Records head Don Was and interviews with the man artists and acts who were and are signed to Blue Note Records.
