From the groundbreaking music to the innovative cover art, Blue Note Records will always be the epitome of cool. Since 1939, Blue Note has been at the forefront of cutting-edge jazz, breaking out in the late 1940s with releases from Art Blakey and Thelonious Monk and hitting its stride with hard bop in the 1950s and beyond, with classic albums from the likes of Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock, to name but a few. Filmmaker Sophie Huber escorts us through the history of this iconic label, tracing its impact and influence right up to present day.
